Chiranjeevi's much awaited Acharya was suppose to start shooting but was halted due to COVID. Now with him going into quarantine the shooting will be stalled for another fifteen days. We also have to wait and see if his wife Surekha, mother Anjana and his grandchildren whom he had been interacting with are fine.
It may be recollected that Megastar had turned chef at home and shared a cute video of him cooking KFC chicken for his grandaughters Nivrithi and Samhitha which he posted on his Social media handles with a caption ,'' it's always fun to cook, even more so when your Assistants are such enthusiastic little kids! So let's see how this pans out :)
