Junior NTR's 26 movie, which has been tentatively titled "Janatha Garage", was launched at a grand opening ceremony held at Mythri Movie Makers in Hyderabad on Monday. 

Junior NTR, who will be playing the lead role in "Janatha Garage", kick-started the shooting by clapping the board, while his son Abhay Ram was made to switch-on the camera. The launch of the movie was attended by Kalyan Ram, BVSN Prasad, Potluri V Prasad, Shyam Prasad Reddy, Achanta Ram, Achanta Gopi, DVV Danayya, VV Vinayak, Errabilli Dayanara Rao Revanth Reddy and others.

After the huge success of "Srimanthudu", director Koratala Siva has once again teamed up with producers Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Shankar and CV Mohan for "Janatha Garage". In a statement released to the media, both the producer and the director hoped that it will be another blockbuster after "Srimanthudu", which happens to be the maiden venture of Mythri Movie Makers.

Koratala Siva, who has hits like "Mirchi" and "Srimanthudu", is very confident about scoring a hat-trick of success with "Janatha Garage". "I have known NTR since "Brindavanam" days and he is a wonderful person. This is a very stylish and emotional action entertainer that will give NTR the kind of subject he deserves," read his statement. 

"He is a brilliant actor who can handle a range of emotions and this script will do justice to his talent. We are in the process of finalising the rest of the cast and crew. Regular shooting will begin in January and we are aiming for an August 12th release", Koratala Siva added.

Producers Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Shankar and CV Mohan are all thrilled over scoring a blockbuster with their maiden venture - "Srimanthudu". The success of the film has boosted their faith in Siva's direction. So they have come forward to join hands with him again. They say that "Janatha Garage" will be a landmark film in the career of Junior NTR.

"We are delighted to produce this film with a brilliant actor like NTR and our director Koratala Siva has come up with a superb script. This is our second project with him after Srimanthudu and this shows how happy we are with his work. This film will be a milestone in NTR's career and we are aiming for a release on August 12th 2016," read the producers' statement.

Besides direction, Koratala Siva has also written the story and screenplay for "Janatha Garage", which will be produced under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers. The movie will have Madhie's cinematography, AS Prakash's art direction and Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao's editing. The makers are likely to reveal the details of other cast and crew shortly.
