Young filmmaker Venu Udugula shot to fame with the recently released Needi Naadi Oke Katha starring Sree Vishnu in the lead role. A story about a young man’s tryst with life and society, Needi Naadi Oke Katha was a decent hit and received a lot of critical acclaim and from audiences too. Venu Udugula is currently prepping for his upcoming film which is also said to be a breezy romantic story, according to reports. Emerging reports reveal that Venu has signed on Fidaa actress Sai Pallavi as the leading lady and the shooting of the film may begin from August of this year. It is also being said that Tamil actor Karthi will be seen playing the lead actor in the film which, however, is yet to get confirmed.
A while ago, it was being reported that Karthi has been signed on to play the lead role in the film. However, the Oopiri actor lashed out at all the reports stating he hasn’t been contacted by anyone about this film. Karthi is currently gearing up for his upcoming film Kadaikutty Singam which is being directed by Pandiraj and produced by his brother Suriya Sivakumar.
On the other hand, Sai Pallavi was last seen in Kanam which dealth with a sensitive issue in the society. Directed by A.L.Vijay, Kanam also starred Naga Shaurya in the lead role and was a bilingual in Telugu and Tamil.
Meanwhile, reports are also doing rounds that Sharwanand may be roped in for this romantic tale. If this materialises, then this will be the second film for Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi together after Hanu Raghavapudi’s Padi Padi Leche Manasu. If reports are to be believed, then the shooting of the film may start rolling from June this year and may hit the screens by end of the year.
