Saiee Manjrekar, who made her acting debut in a title role with Salman Khan's Dabangg 3, is now dabbling in Telugu cinema. Saiee will play a key role in the upcoming action thriller, starring Adivi Sesh and Sobhita Dhulipala in the lead roles.
Speaking of being part of the project, Saiee said in a statement: “For me, what matters is the script and the impact the character has on the overall narrative. Once you dive into the dissection of the character, there are so many beautiful emotions that, as an actress, I can explore. This is what I saw in Major's script, so when it was offered to me, I instantly said "yes." I am open to work in the south and this is a bilingual film, shot simultaneously in two languages. I can't wait to start shooting the movie. "
Saiee will join the film's sets next month in Hyderabad. On casting Saiee for the role, director Sashi Kiran Tikka said, “The right casting is the foundation for a good direction. When we watched her work, we felt Saiee Manjrekar was a perfect fit. "
In March, Sobhita Dhulipala revealed that she, too, will be part of the project, tweeting: “It is an honor and humility to tell a story about the fragility of courage in this incredible bilingual Hindi-Telugu film 'Major'. Trace on the screen the inspiring story of Commander Sandeep Unnikrishnan and the heroes of the 11/26 Bombay attacks. "
Major es una producción de Sony Pictures Films India en asociación con GMB Entertainment y A + S Movies, la superestrella telugu Mahesh Babu. La película está lista para su estreno en verano en 2021.
