And for the first time in the history of Telugu film industry, the 'muhurtham' ceremony of a new film will be telecast live on TV. The event will be shown on MAA TV, starting 11 am on Thursday.

It will be a real treat for Mega fans as actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi and 'Power Star' Pawan Kalyan, the two star brothers of Nagababu, will be attending the launch.
Regular shoot of the untitled flick will reportedly begin in April. The film, deemed a romantic entertainer, will be directed by Srikanth Addala of "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu" fame. Tagore Madhu and Nallamalupu Bujji will be producing the film under Leo Entertainments banner.
Model-turned-actress Pooja Hegde has reportedly been roped in to play the female lead opposite Varun Tej. Details about the film's other cast and crew members are yet to be officially announced.
Varun Tej is the latest Mega family member to join the Telugu film industry. Actor Chiranjeevi once ruled the industry with his charm, outstanding dance skills and acting performances. His brothers Pawan Kalyan and Nagababu also entered the industry and worked in several films. Pawan is still one of the leading actors of Telugu cinema, while Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan and nephew Allu Arjun are also among the top league actors.
His other nephews Allu Sirish and Sai Dharam Tej have also joined the industry. Sirish is still trying to gain a foothold, whereas Dharam Tej's debut film is yet to see the light of day.
