Krish to direct Telugu flick before 'Gabbar'

Chennai, July 12 (IANS) Director Krish, who was set to team up with Akshay Kumar for upcoming Bollywood film "Gabbar", will direct an untitled Telugu film before he starts working for the Hindi project, says a source from the industry.

"Gabbar" will be the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster "Ramana", directed by A.R. Murugadoss. Akshay Kumar is currently busy shooting for Hindi remake of Tamil film "Thuppakki".

"He is directing Varun Tej in his debut film, which is expected to go on floors in August. It will be a quick project as he plans to wrap it up in two months so that he can be prepared for "Gabbar", which is expected to go on floors towards the end of this year or early 2014," the source told IANS.

Varun Tej is the son of Telugu actor Naga Babu, who is the younger brother of megastar Chiranjeevi.

"The script Krish has for Varun will be an out-and-out action entertainer. He is going out of his way to give the perfect launch pad for the actor," the source added.

Krish, who is known for directing films such as "Vedam" and "Krishnam Vande Jagatgurum", is also expected to team up with Mahesh Babu soon.

"Mahesh's project will go on floors next year after he completes his film with Srinu Vaitla. The film has not been shelved but it has only been delayed," said the source.

Mahesh Babu, who is busy wrapping up Telugu action-thriller "1: Nenokkadine", will team up with Srinu Vaitla for "Aagadu" soon.

Mahesh's project with Krish is titled "Shivam", and features Sonakshi Sinha in the lead.
