In 2015, after the completion of the film Loafer, Puri Jagannadh announced that he would start his new project titled Rogue to be a sequel of his 2006 blockbuster film, Pokiri and had approached actor Mahesh Babu for the lead role. Since there were no confirmation from the actor's side, Puri hinted at directing Chiranjeevi's 150th film and narrated the story. Since Chiranjeevi was not impressed with the second half of the film and instead preferred a remake of Tamil film Kaththi, Puri went ahead with a fresh concept and cast producer C. R. Manohar's cousin Ishaan in the lead role. On 5 October 2015, Puri announced on his Twitter that he would introduce a new face for his upcoming film titled Rogue.[5] Initially actresses Aisha Sharma and Pooja Jhaveri were signed on for the lead female roles. The shoot began and suddenly was shelved due to various reasons. Later, Puri revived the project by replacing Jhaveri with Angela Krislinzki who had earlier appeared in a song of the film Jyothi Lakshmi to play the lead role along with Mannara Chopra in the parallel lead.[6]
