Chay’s wife and star actress Samantha Akkineni is said to have played a crucial role in setting up this combination. During a recent meeting with Dil Raju regarding the ’96’ Telugu remake, Samantha has reportedly asked the leading producer to plan a movie with her hubby, who is reeling under a series of flops.
Considering the fact that Dil Raju has got a great track record in film production, Samantha may have apparently recommended Chay to him. Also, the reports have it that Raju has arranged a narration of a subject with a director, to which the Josh actor gave his quick nod. Samantha is very keen about Naga Chaitanya’s career and in the past, rumours emerged that she has recommended Chaitanya for Trivikram’s A..Aa. But, that did not materialize as Nithin came on the board finally. So, now Dil Raju’s film is quite crucial for the young actor who is in need of a success badly.
