Last seen playing an impressive role in Telugu film Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada, actress Nandita Swetha will next be seen opposite Nithiin in National award-winning director Sathish Vegesna’s Srinivasa Kalyanam, which is slated to go on the floors very soon and is being bankrolled by Dil Raju. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Pooja Hegde will play one of the leading roles. After impressing one and all with Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham, Pooja was immediately signed for Bellamkonda Srinivas’s Saakshyam, which is on the verge of completion. Even though Pooja is said to have signed on the dotted line, the makers are yet to make an official announcement.
Apparently, producer Dil Raju, who had worked with Pooja in Duvvada Jagannadham, was so impressed with her work; he’s said to have signed her for this project as well. Nandita, on the other hand, was finalised by director Vegesna, who was impressed with her work in her maiden film. According to sources, it’s going to be a family drama with good entertainment value along the lines of the director’s Shatamanam Bhavati from last year. The team is currently busy with the pre-production work on the project. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised and the process will take a few more weeks.
Nithiin has pinned high hopes on this film following the disaster of Lie, which sank without a trace at the box-office. Interestingly, he also has a yet-untitled Telugu project in a collaborative production venture of Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram.
