In a sensational development, ace director Selvaraghavan’s untitled bi-lingual in Tamil and Telugu with the fastest rising Telugu hero Rana Daggubati of Leader fame has been shelved !

And the big news is that Rana flew down to Chennai and did a “hush hush” photo- shoot at AVM Studios for a new bi- lingual in Tamil and Telugu to be directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon!

It seems Gautham has abandoned all plans to remake VTV in Hindi and will instead concentrate on the Rana film, which is said to be a “different kind of love story”.

Guess Rana’s new heroine? It is none other than the hot and happening Samantha of Ye Maya Chesave , Menon’s sleeper hit in Telugu. Rana and Samantha did the photo shoot together on Monday (June 21) for the untitled film that will start rolling in the last week of July.

So what went wrong with Selva- Rana ambitious project? The buzz is that they had “creative differences” over the script of the film, a period film rumored to be set in 50 BC. Rana it seems wanted a script set in modern times, which Selva was not willing. It seems they have mutually agreed to shake hands and part as friends.
