Mrunal Thakur will next be seen with Dulquer Salmaan in Telugu movie Sita Ramam. The film directed by Hanu Raghavapudi marks her Telugu language debut.

In a recent interview with Times of India, the actress, who was last a part of Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey, believes that South Indian cinema has been a game changer in recent years. Mrunal told the outlet that with movies like Baahubali, KGF: Chapter 2, RRR and Pushpa along with the boom of OTH platforms, the audience has garnered an increased interest in regional movies.

She added that the audience is also now more cognisant if the content that’s offered to them over the language of the content.

“When someone talks about Indian films, one is likely to think first about Bollywood and Hindi music. However, in the past few years and amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, that has changed somewhat as regional cinema steps in a bigger way, courtesy OTT platforms,” said the actress.

Sita Ramam is a period romance drama, which will have Dulquer as Lieutenant Ram while Mrunal portray Sita. The promo which released earlier this year showed the story set in war torn Kashmir in 1964. Vyjayanthi Movies presents the film bankrolled by Ashwini Dutt and Priyanka Dutt under Swapna Cinema.

Joining the cast of this movie are Rashmika Mandanna, Sumanth Gautham Menon and Prakash Raj.

A release date for Sita Ramam is yet to be announced but it will be available in cinemas in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.

Meanwhile, Mrunal has other upcoming projects including Thadam with Aditya Roy Kapur, a war drama Pippa, Aankh Micholi and Gumraah.
