According to a leading daily, noted filmmaker Priyadarshan’s daughter Kalayani may soon be making her big screen debut opposite Akhil Akkineni in a film directed by Vikram Kumar. Confirming the same, a source told Hindustan Times that an official announcement will be made pretty soon.
“She has already been approached but she is yet to sign on the dotted line. Since she entered the industry, she has been getting lot of acting offers. For some reason, she wasn’t quite keen on accepting any of those projects. This project looks exciting as it will mark her debut with a leading star’s son and she is seriously contemplating accepting the offer. Official announcement can expected from the makers in a couple of weeks,” added the source.
In case you did not know, last year, Kalyani worked as an assistant director on ‘Iru Mugan’. Touted to be a sci-fi action, it featured Vikram and Nayanthara in the lead. Directed by Anand Shankar, it did well at the box office. While many may have expected her to remain behind the camera, it seems that the lady keen to follow mother Lissy’s footsteps. We wish her the very best!
On a related note, Akhil made his big screen debut in 2015 with the much-hyped ‘Akhil’. An action-drama, it also featured Sayyeshaa in the lead and underperformed at the box office. As such, it is imperative for the young star that he bounces back with his next film.
