Yukti Thareja became a sensation of sorts with her song 'Lut Gaye' which also featured Emraan Hashmi. Jubin Nauityal sang this number which was a rage and gave Yuti a new lease of life in her career. High on the success of this song, Yukti was offered a Telugu film titled Rangabali in Tollywood. The film had Naga Shaurya as the main lead but sadly failed at the box office and disappointed Yukti.

Now, Yukti has signed her second Telugu film a few days ago. We at OTTplay have come to know that Yukti will be playing the female lead in a film that has two heroes in lead roles. Popular Kannada actor, Dheekshith Shetty, who impressed everyone with Dasara is playing one of the leads.


The second lead is a newcomer and is a special name. He is none other than Sasi Odela, brother of director Srikanth Odela, who directed Nani's Dasara. He is making his debut with this film. The casting is quite special and the film was launched with a small pooja ceremony.

Titled King Jackie Queen, the name sounds interesting. Sasi has been in the industry for quite some time now and we need to see how he goes about his first film in Tollywood. For Yukti, it is a great chance to make a comeback in Telugu cinema as she has a very important role in the film and the story centers around her as per the news.

On the other hand, Dheekshith Shetty is slowly making his presence felt in Telugu cinema and has a very street-smart role in this film say the makers. A small teaser of the film was also revealed and Dheekshith Shetty looks striking. Yukti is showcased boldly as she is seen smoking a cigarette and Sasi is seen as an intense character.

The music of the film will be composed by Purnachandra Tejaswi. KK Radhamohan will produce this film on a low budget. Srikanth Ramishetti is the production designer. More details of this film will be revealed soon.
