Manjula Swaroop earlier produced Show, which won the National Award for Best Screenplay and also acted in it. Nilakanta had directed Show. She had also co-produced the Mahesh Babu starrers Nani and Pokiri with her brother.
The shooting of this untitled flick began on October 20th. The makers plan to finish the shooting at a stretch and have blocked 45 days for continuous shooting. Since Poison, which was considered first for the title has been snapped up by a Sindhu Tolani-starrer, the hunt is still on for a suitable title.
Shyam K. Dutt is handling the camera while Manu (Avakai Biryani) is composing the music.
This is Manjula's second outing as a heroine in a challenging role her male lead pair would be Indrajith Shashank would be playing Charmi's romantic interest.
Charmi and Manjula (veteran actor Krishna's daughter and Mahesh Babu's sister) are all set to share screen space as heroines in a new movie which has a heroine-based subject. Manjula will also be producing the movie under her Indira Productions banner and V.K. Prakash will be directing it. Insiders say that the scripting is very strong and has equally meaty roles for both actresses.
