Dulquer Salmaan aka Lieutenant Ram has got his 'Sita' in the forthcoming film tentatively titled Production No 7. Yes, it's none other than Mrunal Thakur who is making her Telugu debut with the Hanu Raghavapudi directorial. The makers dropped a video on the occasion of her birthday which features both Dulquer and Mrunal. In the announcement video, both are donning a retro look while DQ is shooting his 'Sita' with his vintage camera.

Mrunal shared the first look poster on her Instagram page and wrote, "Here’s a gift from me to you on my special day! Thank you @swapnacinema for this! Here to conquer your hearts with the lovely @dqsalmaan! #declassifiessoon."

The film's announcement along with Dulquer's first look was made on the actor's birthday earlier this week. 

Meanwhile, during an exclusive interaction with OTTPlay, Hanu spoke about casting the heartthrob to play the lead in the film. The filmmaker stated, "Dulquer just lived in the role of Lieutenant Ram. I don’t think there’s another actor we can imagine playing that role now. I am sure when the audience watches the film in theatres, they would feel the same way we did while shooting the film."

The film is a war saga set against the backdrop of a war in Kashmir. Sharing on it, Raghavapudi further said that a different Kashmir will be seen in the film and the movie is more about romanticising the beautiful place. 

The next schedule for the film will take place on August 3, 2021, and the untitled film will not only release in Telugu but also in Tamil and Malayalam.

This is Dulquer's second Telugu film after Mahanati in which he portrayed the role of legendary Gemini Ganesan.

The release date of the forthcoming untitled flick is yet to be announced.
