Niharika who is the grand niece of megastar Chiranjeevi will star in a Telugu project, which will be directed by debutant Ravidurga Prasad.
“We are proud to associate with Niharika, who will be seen in an author-backed role. I really liked her work in “Oka Manasu”, and I believe she has a long way to go. I’m also glad to introduce young director Prasad,” Raghavayya said to an agency.
Prasad is a former associate of Prabhudheva and Rahul Bose.
Talking about the project, Raghavayya said: “It’s a romantic comedy with a nice twist. Nothing about the film will be run-of-the-mill. We are yet to finalise the full cast and we are in talks to rope in seasoned actors for some important characters.”
