Ananya Pandey is said to be the confirmed lady lead of the film. She got trolled for her "struggle" remarks in an interview for a question about nepotism.
The actress anyway is slowly developing into one of the top leading members in Hindi and with Puri's film she wants to keep her options open in Telugu too.
When it comes to the director, he has a big reputation in showing actresses beautifully and more sensuously on screen. In this red dress, she seems to be ready for her new journey, doesn't she?
