A still from the trailer
Close on the heels of similar films falling in the love story genre, Dear Megha is a modern-day love triangle that stars Raja Raja Chora fame Megha Akash as the eponymous protagonist alongside Arjun Somayajula and Adith Arun. Popular Kannada and Telugu actress Pavitra Lokesh will also play an important role as Adith’s mother.
According to reports, the film will release in most theatres in Telugu states and will hit about 300 theatres on September 3.
What is the plot of Dear Megha?
Helmed by Sushanth Reddy, who makes his directorial debut with the film, the romance drama is a remake of the successful Kannada hit Dia (2020), having at its centre a young, cheerful woman Megha Swaroop, who has to choose between two men seeking her love.
The trailer, which dropped on YouTube on August 29, gives us a glimpse of the distinctive plot arc in love stories —the endearing meet-cutes that grow into flirty banter, attraction and love, and gradually crescendos to heartburn and pain. And when a third person enters the scene, as is shown in the trailer, matters become even more twisted.

The soulful music and songs composed by Gaura Hari have already been lapped up by the masses, following the teaser. Arjun Dasyan has bankrolled the film, edited by Prawin Pudi and has PS Varma as its art director. The film made it through the censor board with a ‘U’ cut.
What role does Megha Akash play in Dear Megha?
In an interview with Telangana Today, Megha Akash expressed her nervousness about the release of Dear Megha immediately after Raja Raja Chola. The 25-year-old actor who has been part of Tamil and Telugu films also touched upon the transition she underwent from essaying a fun-loving character in Raja Raja Chola to sliding into a softer and subtler character in Dear Megha. She went on to add that the film “showcases different shades of love and the unconditional side of it too”.
