Actor Pragya Jaiswal, who was last seen in the Telugu war drama Kanche, will be playing the leading lady in actor Manchu Manoj’s yet-untitled next Telugu project.
“After much contemplation, the makers finally zeroed in on Pragya. They felt she and Manoj would make a fresh pair and hence, she’d be perfect as the heroine,” said a source from the film’s unit.
Tipped to be a full-length romantic-comedy, the project’s regular shooting is expected to commence later this month.
To be helmed by T Satya, who earlier made Naa Rakumarudu, the project will be bankrolled by debut producer Varun.
