Nayantara is playing the lead role in the Telugu movie Mallika, directed by choreographer-turned-director Raju Sundaram. Ajith is playing the hero, while Navadeep and Priya is the other pair in the movie. Vagicharla Muralikrishna is bringing out the Telugu dubbed version of the film and the film is all set for release on October 23.
The producer says, “Love and family relations are the basic elements of the film. A father earns money by all unlawful means to give a better life to his children. But whether his children approve his way of earnings or not has to be seen on the screen. Nayantara would appear in the role of a teacher in this film. The lessons taught by her would be entertaining." Suman, Suhasini, Nazar and others are in the cast. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
