Panja Vaisshnav Tej and Ketika

Panja Vaisshnav Tej emerged an unlikely breakthrough star in 2021 with the surprise success of his debut, Uppena, a musical hit where he was paired alongside Krithi Shetty. Uppena was among the initial set of films that released on the big screen after the reopening of theatres across Telugu states. Though he followed it up with a box office dud, Konda Polam, later in the year, it certainly earned critical acclaim and drew praise from many.

The actor's third film is expected to release in the first half of 2022. Directed by Arjun Varma-fame filmmaker Gireesaaya, actress Ketika Sharma plays the female lead in it. BVSN Prasad is bankrolling the project under Sree Venkateswara Cine Chitra. The film's shoot has been progressing at brisk pace since 2021. The team, earlier confirmed, that the title of the project will be announced on January 13.

"We are very much excited for the Title Launch of #PanjaVaisshnavTej and #KetikaSharma #PVT3 Tomorrow. Get ready to fall in love. Direction by @GIREESAAYA #PVT3TitleonJan13th #Vaisshnav3 @SVCCofficial @BvsnP," a tweet by the production house read. The team had even shared a poster which has a rose, stethescope, a greeting card in it. Other details regarding the cast, crew are expected to be confirmed tomorrow.

Ketika Sharma was recently seen in two films, Romantic and Lakshya, both of which didn't perform well at the ticket window. Giresaaya is a former assistant of director Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who was associated with the Telugu version and its Tamil remake as well (as a director).
