Chiranjeevi's 2023 was checkered with one of his two releases being a massive hit - Waltair Verayya, and the other - Bholaa Shankar, tanking at the box office. However, the actor is onto his next project - the ambitious Viswambara, helmed by Mallidi Vassishta. However, while the rest of the ensemble cast has commenced filming for the project, Chiranjeevi is yet to join - courtesy, his knee injury.

Is Chiranjeevi's knee pain preventing him from filming for Viswambara?


If reports are to be believed, it will be a while before Chiranjeevi manages to join the sets of the fantasy action film, Viswambara. The film has been written and directed by Vasshishta and features as ensemble cast of Mrunal Thakur, Janhvi Kapoor and Trisha Krishnan, besides Chiranjeevi. As per a 123Telugu report, the reason behind this is his recurring knee pain which fails to have healed completely over a period of months. The actor's reported discomfort was also allegedly visible during his recent appearance at the Venky75 event, held in lieu of celebrating actor Venkatesh career ahead of his 75th release.

For the unversed, Chiranjeevi underwent a knee surgery in August of last year. Though earlier reports had suggested that Chiranjeevi was to recover over an allotted 45-day period, the knee pain the actor had been dealing with now appears to be a recurring issue.
