Ananya Panday will join the cast of Telugu director Puri Jagannadh’s latest with Vijay Deverakonda, according to a tweet put out by Jagannadh. Shooting for the film began last month.
Vijay Deverakonda, who was in the news last for his hit Arjun Reddy and its portrayal of toxic masculinity, had debuted with the comedy Nuvvila in 2011. Ananya, the daughter of Chunky Pandey, will contribute her oomph factor for the film with fans excited to watch their unique combo.
The film, said to be a joint production since it will be made in multiple languages, is produced by Charmme Kaur and Karan Johar under Dharma Productions along with Puri Jagannadh.
In the tweet shared by Puri Jagannadh, Ananya Pandey looks gorgeous in a little black dress with straps and Vijay Deverakonda flexing his biceps in a red sleeveless T and shorts coupled with a beanie. Deverakonda plays the lead role with Ananya Panday as the female counterpart with Ronit Roy, Makarand Deshpande, Ramya Krishnan and others. Art director Jonny’s set is where the shooting began today in Mumbai with the camera in the able hands of Vishnu Sharma. The stunts are choreographed by Kecha, who has done stellar work in a few Puri Jagannadh films.
Panday, who started with Student of the Year 2, is 2 films old with the extra-marital affair-premised Pati, Patni Aur Woh along with Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. Ananya Panday has evolved with her roles in the 2 films and looks forward to a challenging one in this yet-to-be-titled Telugu film.
