On the work front, Rana Daggubati recently announced the wrap of his Netflix project titled Rana Naidu. The series will mark his first OTT project with his uncle and actor Venkatesh. Sai Pallavi, on the other hand, is looking forward to begin work on a Kamal Haasan production.
Earlier this month, retweeting a set of photos, Sai wrote, “This meeting had me hoping that I’d learn lessons to become a better actor from ‘The Kamal sir’ himself but I walked out of there, subconsciously picking up traits that will make me a better person. This was special! Thank you @ikamalhaasan sir! I’m happy to be a part of this.”
Sai Pallavi also has Gargi in her kitty.
