Ram Charan will have a more or less 30 mins of screentime in the film and he'll appear in flashback scenes. His character loses his life while working on a mission. The same mission then inspires Chiranjeevi's character and he decides to take it forward. The makers have also planned a look test for Charan's character. The father-son duo is also expected to appear in a song together and that is touted to be the major highlight of this Koratala Siva directorial. While Kajal Aggarwal is on board to star opposite Chiranjeevi, makers have apparently roped in Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead opposite Ram Charan.

Post his shooting for Acharya, Ram Charan is expected to join Jr NTR for SS Rajamouli's RRR. The director is currently chalking out his new shooting schedule and expects to start rolling by October end. Chiranjeevi is meanwhile eyeing for an April 2021 release date for Acharya.
