Acharya is the 152nd film of Chiranjeevi and it is touted to be a socio-political action movie, which is made with a big budget. The megastar is said to be playing dual roles as Govind and Acharya in it. The film is reportedly about a middle-aged Naxalite-turned-social reformer who launches a fight against the Endowments Department over misappropriation of temple funds and donations.

Koratala Siva was earlier considering Govindacharya for the title of the movie, but he zeroed in on Acharya for the film. However, he is not made official confirmation about it. Ram Charan's Konidela Production Company is jointly bankrolling this mega budget movie with Matinee Entertainments. Acharya will have Mani Sharma's music, Tirru's cinematography and Sreekar Prasad's editing.
