We had earlier reported that Chiranjeevi is teaming up with director Vassishta for a film titled Vishwambhara. It’s now known that Trisha has joined the film’s cast list.
The veteran actor took to X where he shared a photo as well as a video from the sets of the film featuring him with the filmmaker and Trisha.
Trisha shared more photos on her X profile, calling it a “homecoming”. In another tweet, she said, “An honour it is to reunite with the one and only Megastar after 18 years.”
Vishwambhara marks the reunion of Chiranjeevi and Trisha after 2006’s Stalin. Said to be a fantasy film, Vishwambhara has music and lyrics from Oscar-winners MM Keeravani and Chandrabose respectively.
