Director Sekhar Kammula is currently working on his upcoming film which is titled Fidaa and is being produced by Dil Raju under the banner Sri Venkateshwara Creations. The film features Varun Tej as the male lead and Premam actress Sai Pallavi in the female lead. Fidaa will mark the debut of Sai Pallavi in Telugu cinema.
Touted to be a romantic saga, Fidaa will narrate the story of how a small-town girl from Telangana falls in love with an NRI, and how their relationship shapes up from there. The makers have made an official announcement that the teaser of Fidaa will be released on June 17th, 2017. Fidaa will be an important film in the career of Varun Tej since he hasn’t had a great run so far in his career.
On the other hand, Sai Pallavi, popular for her role as Malar in Malayalam blockbuster Premam, is already in high demand in all the South Indian film industries, especially in Telugu. Besides Fidaa, the actress has also signed her second Telugu film which will star Natural Star Nani in the lead role. The film is titled MCA and coincidentally will be produced by Dil Raju again.
Fidaa, which went into making in August last year, was supposed to hit the silver screens on May 19 but was postponed due to some delay from the production side. The film’s new release date is expected to be out soon.
