Young hero Naga Chaitanya, who is carrying the legacy of Akkineni family by becoming the new first choice hero for romantic entertainers, has missed a super hit romantic film.
Reports emerged couple of months ago that Chaitu was in discussions to act in the Telugu remake of super hit Bollywood film, ‘2 States’. Produced by Karan Johar, the romantic drama was a silver screen adaptation of best-selling writer Chetan Bhagat’s popular book of the same title. Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt played the lead roles in the Hindi film.
A noted producer acquired the Telugu remake rights and wanted to rope in Chaitu and Samantha to play the leads in the remake. The project however didn’t materialize as Chaitu reportedly wasn’t interested.
Months later, latest reports suggest that ‘2 States’ remake is finally happening, and with a different hero. Adivi Sesh, who scored a hit with “Kshanam”, has reportedly been signed to replace Chaitu in the remake. Sesh will play a Telugu boy who falls in love with a North Indian girl. A star kid has almost been finalized to play the fame lead, she will be making her film debut. The pre-production work is currently in progress, and the team plans to hit floors in March.
