The actress is paired with debutant Roshan Meka, the son of veteran actor Srikanth, in the film.
After wowing Kannada audiences with her cutesy roles in Kiss and Bharaate, Sreeleela went ahead to broaden her horizons in the Telugu film industry, with not one but two films. First, she signed up for Pelli SandaD, the launchpad of Roshan Meka, the son of veteran actor Srikanth, which she followed up with Ravi Teja film.
A quarter of a century ago, Srikanth was the hero of a Telugu film called Pelli Sandadi, which was directed by K Raghavendra Rao. While Pelli SandaD is directed by Gowri Ronanki, veteran filmmaker Raghavendra Rao has served in a supervisory position for the entire production.
Although the young actress has been tight-lipped about her role in the film, she has been reportedly said that she took up the project solely because she got a role to die for. Also, Raghavendra Rao’s appreciation of her when they met and the fact that the film would be a MM Keeravani musical were added factors for Sreeleela to be a part of the film. And now, she is counting down to the release of her Tollywood debut. On Friday, Sreeleela announced that her film is getting a Dasara festive release on October 15. Along with a poster of the film, she wrote, “And were readyyyy!!!!! See you in theatres this OCTOBER 15”. It remains to be seen how big a release the film will get in Karnataka, considering that multiple Kannada films, including Kotigobba 3, Salaga and email@example.com, will be in theatres in the same week.
Meanwhile, back home, Sreeleela has already begun promotions for her next Kannada film, By2Love, in which she is paired with Dhanveerah. The modern-day love story has the duo playing corporate professionals in a relationship. But what’s most interesting is a poster that the team released with the duo in what appears to be a wedding scene and a young child. Sounds interest, right?
And while she was then committed to start a film with Dhruva Sarja and director Nanda Kishore, called Dubaari, that project is currently on hold.
