Bhaskar is directing a film titled Ongole Gitta with Ram as the hero. Produced by BVSN Prasad, the film has had teething problems owing to some unavoidable reasons.
Just as the director thought of two heroes before selecting Ram (because Karthi and Allu Arjun both could not act in the film owing to dates issues), he had to go for two heroines, one a Bengaluru model and two, an Indian woman settled in South Africa, before zeroing in on Kriti Kharbanda of Teen Maar and Mr. Nookayya fame.
It was due to Shuba Phutela's health issues that she had to be dropped after shooting some scenes with her.
Currently being shot at Tanaku, the film has music by GV Prakash Kumar. It is scheduled for a December release.
