Naga Chaitanya is collaborating with director Chandoo Mondeti for his next project. This will be the third film in their combination after Premam and Savyasachi. The film is being made with a massive budget under the renowned banner Geetha Arts.
Naga Chaitanya desperately needs a hit, so the makers have roped in Sai Pallavi as the female lead. Both Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi earlier worked together in the hit film Love Story directed by Shekhar Kammula.
The film was supposed to have Anirudh Ravichander’s music but now he has been replaced. Due to some reasons, Anirudh, who is having a great run with blockbuster movies has walked out and now Santosh Narayanan will compose the music for NC23.
Naga Chaitanya and Chandoo Mondeti recently interacted with the fishing families in the K Matchilesam village, Srikakulam, and learned more about their way of life. The film is a rural drama and will require Naga Chaitanya to speak in local dialect as he is playing a fisherman in he movie.
