Telugu star Naga Chaitanya Akkineni will be seen as a hockey player in his much-hyped upcoming movie 'Thank You'. The 'Manam', actor who wrapped up the shooting for the movie earlier, will be seen in a role for which he had undergone a body transformation as well. Despite Naga Chaitanya's role as a hockey player, the movie is not a sports drama, but has a different storyline, which is expected to enthrall the audience.

The film is directed by Vikram K Kumar and produced by Dil Raju under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations. Raashii Khanna and Avika Gor are the lead actresses.

The duo- Naga Chaitanya and Vikram Kumar had previously worked together in Manam, which also featured Naga Chaitanya's dad Nagarjuna, and granddad Akkineni Nageswara Rao.
