Tentatively titled 'Kathilantodu', the project will be directed by V.V. Vinayak.
"Anushka has already been approached and she has also given her verbal consent. However, she is yet to officially sign on the dotted line. Since she has two more Telugu projects in her kitty, she is figuring out dates to allocate," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
While the pre-production work is already underway, the regular shooting will start from June.
Although Anushka has grooved to a special number with Chiranjeevi in his 2006 Telugu film "Stalin", this will be first time they will team up as the leading pair.
In the film, Chiranjeevi will essay dual roles. The project will mark the debut of Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan as producer.
