Last year, a writer associate director, Rajesh claimed that the storyline of the movie has been copied from his film “Annayya”, but the makers of Acharya were quick to respond against the allegations and refuted all rumors about the same.
The film stars Chiranjeevi as Acharya, where this Chiranjeevi’s first collaboration with Koratala Siva. Undoubtedly, one of the much-awaited South Indian Movies.

Though the makers of the film are yet to share the trailer of the movie, the teaser was released earlier this year in January. The teaser shares a glimpse of Chiranjeev as Acharya that begins with the dialogue “People who live for others are no less than God and when such lives are in danger God doesn’t have to come as their savior”. He then says that people call him Acharya maybe because he teaches them a lesson.
The filmmakers even released the promo of the song Neelambari on November 5, 2021.
Last year, the motion poster was also released on Chiranjeev’s 65th Birthday, where we could see that the movie is related to the temple and the temple lands.
The approximate budget of the film is set around Rs 140 Cr.
