Venkatesh’s love for cricket
Venkatesh is so in love with the sport, he seems to not miss a match if he can help it – no matter where it’s taking place in the world. The actor has been spotted at various sporting events across the world through the years, especially if Team India is playing the game. The actor has also shown his affinity for the sport in the Celebrity Cricket League, which sees Tollywood stars play cricket matches.
His upcoming projects
Venkatesh has been busy lately, shooting for Sailesh Kolanu’s Saindhav. The film, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in his Telugu debut, is Sailesh’s third film after three films in the HIT series, including one in Hindi. The film will hit screens later this year and also stars Shraddha Srinath, Andrea Jeremaiah and Ruhani Sharma in key roles.
