According to sources, Chay and Chandoo Mondeti's third collaboration, ‘NC23’, has already began planning. For the same reason, the two went to Srikakulam's K Matchilesam hamlet.

Previously, the ‘Venky Mama’ actor had also spoken about the film, stating that he was thrilled for it as soon as he heard the script.
