Director Srinivasa Reddy and actor Akkineni Naga Chaitanya were to team up for Telugu romantic-comedy Hello Brother, a remake of 1994 film of the same name. However, the project has been shelved, so the duo is now teaming up for another untitled movie.
"Naga Chaitanya and Hansika Motwani are coming together for the film, which is expected to go on floors in September. Since Hello Brother remake didn't materialise, Chaitu has decided to go ahead with this project with the same director," the film's spokesperson told IANS.
C Kalyan will produce the film, which will also feature Brahmanandam in an important role. This will be the first time Hansika and Chaitanya will be seen together. The original Hello Brother featured Akkineni Nagarjuna in double roles. It was a blockbuster. Meanwhile, Chaitanya is busy wrapping up Telugu action-drama Auto Nagar Surya, while Hansika is busy shooting for Tamil films Vaalu and Maan Karate.
