On Tuesday, both production houses took to social media to announce their new projects. Gold Box Entertainments posted on X (formerly Twitter), “After 155 films, now #MEGA156 will be a MegaRocking entertainer.” Sushmita has been Chiranjeevi’s stylist ever since his return to cinema with Khaidi No. 150.

The 157th film is poised to be a fantasy entertainer, going by the details revealed by UV Creations. In a statement, they said that the audience is enthusiastic to see Chiranjeevi in another fantasy entertainer like Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari

The new fantasy film will be directed by Vassishta and produced by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati and Vikram Reddy for UV Creations. The announcement poster for #Mega157 represents the five elements of nature — earth, water, fire, air and sky. More details of the cast and crew will be revealed soon.
