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.
