Ravi Teja's upcoming film in Sampath Nandi's direction has been officially titled as Bengal Tiger. Tamannaah is going to play the lead role opposite Ravi Teja in this commercial entertainer and it'll be produced by K K Radhamohan, who had earlier backed films like Yemaindhi Ee Vela and Pyar Mein Padipoyane. The principal shooting of the film is expected to begin from late February, 2015 soon after Ravi Teja wraps up shooting for Kick 2. "Ravi Teja and Tamannaah's onscreen chemistry will be a major highlight in the film and it has everything which Ravi Teja's fans might expect from the actor," Sampath Nandi said.
Gabbar Singh 2 was first announced with Sampath Nandi as the Director but as there was a delay in the start of the project due to politics and other reasons Sampath moved on to produce a film in his own banner and now to direct Ravi Teja's Bengal Tiger.
