Mithila Palkar, the actress best remembered as Kavya Kulkarni in Little Things, is all set to test new waters with Ori Devuda, the Telugu remake of Oh My Kadavule. She is paired alongside Vishwak Sen in the film helmed by Ashwath Marimuthu. In Ori Devuda, she plays Anu, a role that Ritika Singh had essayed in the original. Mithila was in Hyderabad for the film’s trailer launch on Friday.

“Thanks a lot for the warm reception even before I’ve entered the house. I must first credit Ashwath Marimuthu for this; the truth is that I wouldn’t have been here if not for him. I am grateful to PVP sir for the opportunity and also to Vishwak Sen for sharing screenspace with me and being so patient with my Telugu lines,” the Little Things actor said.

“I had just prepared one line for the teaser launch and I’ll try to say it correctly - Meeru icchina swagatham tho naaku chala santoshamga undi,” Mithila said, after which she even sang a few lines from the song ‘Avunanavaa’ (will you say yes?), originally rendered by Sid Sriram in the film. A man from the crowd had cheekily responded to her with an ‘avunu’ (yes) later, which Mithila completely enjoyed.

“I’m sure this Diwali is going to be very entertaining for you guys. Hope to see you all at the cinemas,” she signed off amidst a lot of cheer from crowds. Mithila Palkar, who recently won at the OTTplay Awards 2022 (along with Dhruv Sehgal, for the best on-screen couple award for Little Things Season 4) was also part of Hindi films like Katti Batti, Chopsticks, Karwaan and Tribhanga earlier.

The Mumbai born actress, who also had a theatre stint and is well trained in Hindustani classical music, was first noticed in a Marathi short film Majha Honeymoon and earned popularity for her appearances in web shows (apart from Little Things) like Girl in the City, Official Chukyagiri. She also had a cameo in the Netflix show Masaba Masaba recently.
