Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, who is high on success after 'Lovestory' and 'Bangarraju', is likely to begin shooting for a web series, produced by Amazon Prime Video.

It is being reported that Naga Chaitanya is prepping to play a never-before-role, as he is also working on his physical appearance for the much-hyped web series.
Inside talks suggest that Chaitanya will be seen in a role with multi-layered idiosyncrasy, while he plays a journalist. Now, in the talks is Chaitanya's makeover, which he has been prepping to bring in, for the role in the web series.
Chaitanya will be seen romancing Priya Bhavani Shankar, while the web series will have three seasons. Other sources also report that the story of this much-hyped series revolves around time travel and each season will have around 8-10 episodes.

Apart from this, Naga Chaitanya will next be seen in Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha,' which is an official remake of Robert Zemeckis's Tom Hanks starrer, 'Forrest Gump.' The comedy-drama featuring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor is directed by Advait Chandan. Chaitanya will be seen essaying the role of an army officer in the film.
