Teja will direct Sairam Shankar in a film titled Veyyi Abaddalu. The cinematographer-turned-director is having a string of flops in recent times. His last film Neeku Naaku Dash Dash sank at the box office without a trace. Similar was the fate of his Keka.
Veyyi Abaddalu or 1000 Lies is being produced by Paladugu Prabhakar who earlier made Cinemaki Veladam Randi. Pre-production works are in progress and the rest of the cast and crew are being finalised.
