Megastar Chiranjeevi and Kajal Aggarwal starrer Acharya is being shot at a brisk pace. The film’s shooting is currently in progress in Hyderabad. A couple of weeks back, Ram Charan joined the sets for his key role in the film. While the makers have not made any announcements regarding the film, Kajal revealed during an interview that it will be a commercial entertainer.
Now, a new report has come up in The Times Of India stating that the film will star Pooja Hegde as Ram Charan's love interest. It is also reported that Pooja will be seen as a girl from a rural background. However, the starring of Pooja has not been made official yet by the makers. A while back, Chiranjeevi shared a sneak-peek of a massive temple set that was constructed for the film.

Directed by Koratala Siva, Acharya is touted to be a social drama. Earlier, the makers roped in Trisha Krishnan to play the female lead. However, she walked out of the film citing creative differences. Later, Kajal was auditioned for the role and brought on board the film. It is expected that the makers will come up with more updates in the upcoming days. The film made the headlines recently after Chiranjeevi’s COVID-19 test came out falsely positive. Chiranjeevi took to his social media later and clarified that he had to get himself tested before joining the sets of Acharya and the result was faulty.
