Ram Charan Teja and Wife Upasana Kamineni to Move to Mumbai Soon
Southern superstar Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja who is making his Bollywood debut as Inspector Vijay in "Zanjeer" remake is serious about his career in the Hindi film industry.
The Tollywood actor, who is presently in Mumbai for the film's shooting, is reportedly on a hunt for a home in the financial capital. The "Magadheera" star apparently took help from his mentor Salman Khan to buy a suitable place in Mumbai.
After a week of searching for a house, Ram Charan has zeroed in on a property in Bandra, close to where Salman Khan lives. The house is also close to Shahrukh Khan's house "Mannat", which is located in the same district.
Though several southern stars like Rajinikant, Kamal Hasan, Surya, R. Madhavan and Ram Charan's father Chiranjeevi have had a share of success in Bollywood, they all went back to their respective film industry. Ram Charan, on the other hand, is thinking of establishing a parallel career in the Hindi film industry.
"He is already the numero uno in Hyderabad. Ram doesn't want Zanjeer to be a one-off blockbuster in Hindi like his dad's Pratibandh. He wants to build a career brick by brick in Mumbai. And that means setting up a home in Mumbai," The Times of India quoted a close friend of the actor as saying.

Apart from pursing his career in Bollywood, another reason why he is hunting for a house in Mumbai is because of his wife Upasana Kamineni.
Upasana Kamineni is the vice-chairman of Apollo Charity and granddaughter of Prathap C Reddy, the Managing Director of the Apollo Hospitals. Apparently, Kamineni has some hospital expansions plans in Mumbai.
"Upasana and Ram want to set up a home in Mumbai from where they can pursue their respective careers. While she will work on the hospital project in Mumbai Ramcharan intends to build his Bollywood career beyond Zanjeer. He has already given the nod to another film with the Zanjeer director Apoorva Lakhia which will also star Abhishek Bachchan and is in talks with a leading corporate house in Mumbai for a lucrative 3-film deal," the friend said.
The Telugu actor confirmed the news saying that he was in Mumbai last week in search of a good property and saw three properties in and around Bandra.
"I was in Mumbai last week to buy a home. I saw three properties in and around Bandra. Now I am going back to Mumbai with my wife to finalize the deal. The deal will be sealed in a week," the actor said.
