Nenu Naa Raakshasi is another action romance movie starring Rana Daggubatri and Ileana. After Leader success, Rana is making grounds to prove a point in Telugu movies about his commercial viability. Cut across to Nenu Na Raakshasi director Puri Jagannth, this movie is surely a litmus test for him since he's overdue for a hit in Telugu films after Chirutha in 2007. Once again, Puri Jagannth roped his lucky heroine Ileana to start beside Rana, but he can set the box office going like he earlier did with Pokiri movie? Produced by Nallamalapu Bujji under Lakshmi Narasimha Productions, Nenu Naa Raakshsi release has become a acid test for several.

Balakrishna is also in the summer slipstream! Balakrishna, Paruchuri Murali is in the making and the movie is slated for June release.
