Once he wraps up Rangasthalam 1985 with Sukumar, Ram Charan is more or less decided to work with Boyapati Sreenu. But way before committing to Boyapati, Ram Charan had sittings with Mani Ratnam and almost decided to do a film.
However, Cheliya happened and Charan immediately dropped the idea. After seeing the fate of Karthi's film, Mani's film may not happen any time soon.
Also before saying yes to Boyapati, he had also listened to the stories narrated by Kishore Tirumala for a possible pairing. However, Ram Charan stayed safe and did not commit for a film as he wanted to see the fate of Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi.
But hit or flop, Ram Charan works with directors he likes. But he did not chose to work with Kishore Tirumala, says an inside source.
For now, he will work with Boyapati's movie from Feb, 2018 and start on another film with Koratala Siva from July 2018.
So, that's the current plan of Charan for the coming year.
