Post the success of his latest movie "Baadshah", Jr NTR has shifted his focus to his upcoming and most-anticipated movie - "Ramayya Vasthavayya".

It was known that the young tiger of Telugu cinema, Jr NTR, would star in director Harish Shankar's movie after "Baadshah". There were a lot of speculations as to what would be the movie's title. But the director had earlier said that he would announce the title after the release of "Baadshah".

Directed by Sreenu Vaitla of "Dookudu" fame, "Baadshah" was released on 5 April across the globe. The film received rave reviews and is currently doing good business at the box office both in India and overseas. After facing three back-to-back flops, "Baadsha's" success has brought a sense of relief for Jr NTR as well as his fans.

With "Baadshah" becoming a blockbuster, the makers of Jr NTR's new movie have revealed the film's title as "Ramayya Vasthavayya". Director Harish Shankar also tweeted the first look poster of the new movie. The poster showing a stylish Jr NTR holding a gadha (an ancient Indian mace) generates a lot of curiosity about the film's storyline.

Jr NTR will reportedly be seen as a student leader in this action entertainer. The story revolves around how the hero tackles some issues and leads a revolution against a system. The shooting of "Ramayya Vasthavayya" is already progressing at a brisk pace in Hyderabad. According to latest reports, the film is being canned at Lanco Hills, the new landmark of the city.

Actresses Samantha and Shruti Haasan are playing the female leads. Latest buzz is that Jr NTR's wife Nandamuri Lakshmi Pranathi will be doing a small sequence in the movie. She will reportedly appear as a college student for just 25 seconds in the movie.  

"Ramayya Vasthavayya" is produced by Dil Raju and music is scored by S Thaman of "Baadshah" fame. The movie is likely to get released on 9 August.
