Rana Daggubati's career took a slump of late with his latest and much-talked-about film Aranya witnessing a dismal show at the box office. But that has not dampened his spirit to sign experimental films. According to the latest reports, Rana signed a film to be directed by debutant Venky, a protégé of star filmmaker Sukumar. Rumours have it that the film is a period drama, but there is no confirmation on the same. Besides, Rana has Virata Parvam scheduled for 30th April release, and a yet-to-be-titled remake film also starring Pawan Kalyan as the other lead.
