Megastar Chiranjeevi on Tuesday commenced shooting for a fantasy entertainer titled 'Mega 156'.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter) production house UV Creations shared a video from the film's pooja ceremony.

"In the good old days, films used to begin with music compositions, and #Mega156 has brought the tradition back to Telugu Cinema Beginning the MEGA MASS BEYOND UNIVERSE with a celebratory song composition followed by an auspicious Pooja Ceremony Wishing everyone a very Happy Dussehra," the post said.

The video begins with music director MM Keeravani talking about the film's music recording prior to the official launch.

Previously, this film was set to be Chiranjeevi's 157th project. Initial posters also featured this number.

But now it's tentatively titled as 'Mega 156'.
