In the Telugu version of the film, the lead female character is being played by Kajal Aggarwal.

Acharya is being directed by Saaho director Sujeeth. Meanwhile, Salman is currently busy with Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai which was scheduled to hit the screens as the big Eid release this year. However, considering the ongoing lockdown situation to curb the growing spread of the coronavirus, the shooting of the film hasn’t been yet completed and Salman is more likely to push the release date once normalcy returns to the country. The film also features Disha Patani and Randeep Hooda in important roles.
