Move over the romantic, here comes the action hero, seems to be the message that upcoming hero Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is conveying through his latest starrer, Dhada while he was shooting for a special song sequence at Annapurna Studios recently.

He was hip hopping to steps composed by Prem Rakshith with the top London model and Bollywood actress, Aruna Shields along with a group of dancers in the gorgeous set. Gnanasekhar cinematographed the titillating number.

The grad from the New York Film Study School, Ajay Bhuyan wielded the megaphone. After tasting big success with two consecutive love stories, ‘Chaitu' as he is being referred to affectionately by industry folk, is attempting an image makeover as a angry young man whose very name evokes fear among the antagonists. Most of the story is set in U.S. from where the hero hails. Kajal plays his love interest.

Somewhere along the line, the baddies Kelly Dorjee, Rahul Dev and Mukesh Rishi antagonize him. The ensuing thrilling action blocks were composed by the top stunt master Pradit Siluyem from Bangkok.

The romantic, action entertainer has a liberal dose of light banter provided by Brahmanandam, Ali, Venumadhav, Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam and Uthej.

Bharani plays a key role while Sriram and Sameeksha are the second leads.

According to producer D. Sivaprasad Reddy, the shoot went on for 145 days and they are wrapping up the shooting with this special song. He is so confident about the project that he has decided to release it throughout Andhra Pradesh tying with R.R. Movie Distributors.

The brief recess comes to an end, the shoot commences and the energy levels of Chaitanya give you the feel of a new angry young man on the anvil. The movie is slated for release on August 12.
