Initially, they brought in Trisha as the heroine of the film but she shocked the team at the last minute. She took to Twitter and announced that she will be no longer the part of the film due to Creative Differences.

The actress recently slashed her remuneration owing to poor demand but she made very good money from this project. The shoot of Acharya has been put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It will resume shortly. Kajal is expected to join the shoot as soon as the shooting resumes. She previously romanced Chiranjeevi in Khaidi No 150. The film also marks the reunion of Chiranjeevi and Veteran Music Director Mani Sharma after several years. The movie is produced by Ram Charan and Niranjan Reddy. Ram Charan will be seen in an extended cameo in the film.Follow @THEPANIPURI
