‘Kabali’ actress Sai Dhanshika will next been in a bilingual film which is titled ‘Mela’ which will be directed by a newcomer, Kiran Sripuram. Featuring Surya Tej as the lead actor, ‘Mela’ is said to be a commercial entertainer and will have many intense scenes. ‘Mela’ will mark the debut of Dhanshika in Telugu cinema since ‘Kabali’ was a dubbed version and not a straight film. Dhanshika also has another bilingual film, titled ‘Valu Jada’, which also has been announced and is in the making.
“Dhanshika loved the script very much. It’s a power-packed story in which her character is going to be interesting. We will also release the film in Malayalam too. We will begin shooting towards the end of October and want to give the local audiences a flavour they can relate to,” a report in DC quoted the lead actor Surya Tej.

Surya Tej, who is quite excited about this project, further adds, “This character is going to give me scope for performing as it has a lot of variations. I am quite excited.” ‘Mela’ will be produced by Santosh Konka while the cinematography will be handled by Mohan Reddy who is a National Award winning technician.
Dhanshika, on the other hand, also has quite a few other Tamil projects in her kitty one of them being ‘Vizhithiru’, which was slated to be released on October 6th but had to be deferred because of the strike called by the Tamil Producers’ Council.
