Chay plays a fisherman in his next


Naga Chaitanya’s 23rd film, which was tentatively called NC23, is titled Thandel, which meaans captain in Telugu. Along with the title, the makers have also unveiled the first-look poster of the film, which has a beefed-up Naga Chaitanya squatting on a boat in the sea.

Chay wrote, “#NC23 is #Thandel A character I’m really looking forward to playing .. and a team I’m really fond of @chandoomondeti, @Sai_Pallavi92, @ThisIsDSP and every one at @GeethaArts. Shoot begins soon 🙂 (sic).”

Looks like Naga Chaitanya is playing a fisherman in the film, which is directed by Chandoo Mondeti, known for his hit films Karthikeya and Karthikeya 2. This marks his third collaboration with the actor. The two have earlier worked together in the Telugu remake of the hit Malayalam film Premam and Savyaasachi. Both their previous collaborations have only yielded mediocre results.

The film is also an important one in Naga Chaitanya’s career as he has not delivered a hit in the past few years. His last film Custody, which raised expectations, turned out to be another flop in his career.

Other than Naga Chaitanya, the film also has Sai Pallavi in the lead role. Devi Sri Prasad is composing music for the film, which is produced by Allu Aravind’s Geetha Arts. Other cast details and the release date of the film are yet to be unveiled.
