The much-anticipated collaboration between the legendary Chiranjeevi and the talented Vassishta, titled Mega 156, has officially kicked off its production. The announcement was made by the film's production team via social media, generating excitement among fans of the Telugu film industry.

Chiranjeevi, a stalwart with a remarkable career spanning nearly 45 years, continues to captivate audiences with his unparalleled talent.

Mega 156 is positioned as a supernatural action film, a genre that adds an intriguing dimension to Chiranjeevi's illustrious filmography. Produced by Vamsi Pramod under the banner of UV Creations, the film boasts music by the Academy Award-winning composer MM Keeravani. Notably, the cinematography is handled by the acclaimed Chota K Naidu, and the dialogues are penned by Sai Madhav Burra.

The first look poster of Mega 156 was unveiled on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, offering a glimpse into the visual spectacle that awaits the audience. The poster features an ancient Indian trident set against the backdrop of a flood and explosion, hinting at a cinematic extravaganza.

On the recent work front, Chiranjeevi graced the screen in the action-packed film Bhola Shankar, directed by Meher Ramesh. A remake of the 2015 Tamil film Vedalam, the movie also starred Tamannaah Bhatia, Keerthy Suresh, Sushanth, and others in significant roles.
