Actor Sai Dharam Tej is teaming up with "Patas" fame director Anil Ravipudi and Dil Raju for his next film, which will be the fourth film of the young Mega family hero.

Anil Ravipudi is basically a script and dialogue writer and became director with Kalyam Ram's recent hit film "Pataas". Along with S Krishna, he has written the script for his next movie.

Recently, he narrated the story to Sai Dharam Tej, who was impressed and gave his consent to play the lead role in the movie.

The director is currently busy with pre-production works of the yet-to-be titled movie.

Sai Dharam Tej will romance "Oohalu Gusagusalade" fame actress Rashi Khanna in the film, which will also feature Saikumar and Posani Krishna Murali in important roles.

The untitled movie will be produced by Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations. Sirish and Lakshman will be the co-producers of the film, which will have Anil Ravipudi's story, screenplay and dialogues; Sai Sriram's cinematography; Sai Karthik's music; MR Varma's editing and Venkat's fights.

The untitled movie is expected to go on floors in September. The makers have plans to complete shooting in six months and release it in theatres during summer 2016.

Sai Dharam Tej started his acting career with YVS Chowdary's "Rey". Despite completing its production, the movie failed to become his debut film as its release has been delayed due to some reason.

His next film "Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham", which was released in theatres on 14 November 2014, did decent collection at the box office.

Currently, Sai Dharam Tej is busy shooting for director Harish Shankar's next venture "Subramanyam for Sale", which features Regina Cassandra and Adah Sharma in the female lead. After wrapping it up, the young actor is expected to take up the shooting of Anil Ravipudi's second directorial venture.
