Several fans have been wishing their favourite actor a speedy recovery.
Chiranjeevi has played an active role in spreading awareness about COVID-19, ever since the pandemic broke out earlier this year. From educating citizens on the importance of wearing a mask to leading the Telugu film industry’s Corona Crisis Charity (CCC), the veteran actor has led quite a few campaigns related to the crisis.
In September, Chiranjeevi’s brother Nagababu tested positive for COVID-19. The actor-producer was hospitalised and even experienced severe symptoms during the initial days of the infection. However, he recovered after a few weeks of isolation.
Directed by Koratala Siva, Acharya is among the much-anticipated Telugu films. Touted to be an action entertainer, the film is being produced by Ram Charan under his Konidela Productions banner.
