Venu Udugula has made a name with his very first film Needi Naadi Oke Katha. Starring Sree Vishnu and Satna Titus in lead roles, the film was appreciated by critics and audience alike for its concept that revolves around education.
Venu has assisted director Madan for Pellaina Kothalo and then debuted as a director with NNOK. The debut director who tasted success and received laurels from the film fraternity is all set to direct Sai Pallavi in his next flick.
Touted to be a period love story set in the 90s, the film has a mix of politics and action. Venu who is in search of lead pair has inked the deal with Sai Pallavi who on listening to the story has given her nod.
Sai Pallavi is on a roll with a slew of good projects lined up. The actress who shot to fame with Malayalam Premam has gained a fan base in Telugu with Shekhar Kammula's Fidaa. She recently made her Tamil debut with KL Vijay's Kanam. Though the result of the film disappointed, Pallavi's performance was praised. Currently, she has Maari 2 and NGK in Tamil with Dhanush and Suriya respectively and Padi Padi Leche Manasu with Sharwanand in Telugu. She is the one actress in recent times who is getting performance-oriented roles.
We hope Venu Udugula too has scripted something good for her. The film will be bankrolled by Prasad Chukkapalli and Sudhakar Cherukuri under Sri Lakshmi Venkateswara Cinemas banner and the rest of the details are yet to be revealed. Karthi and Malayalam actor Nivin Pauly are the names we are hearing from our sources.
