Earlier this week, actor Nitin Reddy has announced that he would kick-start his next project with director Karunakaran after director Nandini Reddy put her movie with him on hold for her debut Bollywood film. The latest news that the actor would romance Bollywood actress Mishti in this yet-to-be titled Telugu movie, which is expected to go on floors.
In a statement to the media, actor Nitin himself has confirmed
the news about casting Mishti for his untitled the movie with
Karunakaran. "My next film is with director Karunakaran. The film
is going to be a romantic entertainer to be produced under the
Sreshth Movies banner. Mishti, who debuted with Subash Ghai's film,
Kanchi will be playing the lead actress," the TOI quotes
Nitin as saying.
Born as Indrani Chakraborty in a Bengali middle-class family in
West Bengal, Mishti made her acting debut with director Rupali
Guha's 2013 Bengali film Porichoi, which featured her
alongside Prosenjit Chatterjee. Before her acting career, she was
working as an English teacher at a Kolkata-based privately-owned
school. Later, she forayed into Bollywood with filmmaker Subhash
Ghai's much-talked about film Kaanchi: The Unbreakable.
Now, she will enter South Indian film industry with Nitin and Karunakaran's forthcoming Telugu movie. The makers of the film are yet to make an announcement on when she will join its shooting.
