Actor Allu Sirish will next be seen in an interesting plotline which deals with a parallel life, if not completely, but the narrative strikes a connection with parallel life. Sirish will be seen romancing Surbhi in Okka Kshanam and the couple run into a situation which makes the story of Okka Kshanam. Director of the film, Vi Anand, says that the story of the film didn’t start with the concept of ‘parallel life’ initially when the story was being built. “I’ve been a huge fan of the sci-fi genre right from my childhood. But Okka Kshanam did not start out as a film exploring ‘parallel life’ at all! It started off as story about two characters finding out about the lives of another couple. While developing these characters I thought, what if I inserted the concept of parallel life into it all? I did and it gave a whole new life, meaning and freshness to the film. The conflicts that arise as a consequence is what the film is now all about,” Vi Anand was quoted by TOI as saying.

Anand further breaks down the concept and explains, “We all believe in the notion that destiny is fixed. Similarly, falling in love isn’t in your control either. So what happens when destiny is pitted against love? Can true love alter destiny? is that even possible, or will it surrender? What happens when two such powerful forces are pitted against each other? That is the conflict point that the narrative explores.”

Okka Kshanam also stars Srinivas Avasarala and Seerat Kapoor too paired opposite each other and will be seen playing pivotal roles. Speaking further about the script, Anand says, “The script has multiple layers to it and to make such a complex concept relatable to people was not an easy task. Every scene in the film is interrelated. What look like simple and ordinary characters or scenes at first will all have a hidden meaning, which will become apparent only in the end. Every scene, shot and detail has been put in with an intention. The film is going to have a lot of dots that will connect by the end.”
