Director Hanumanth Rao Raghavapudi’s Upcoming Film, Starring Dulquer Salmaan, to Go on Floors From March-End

Telugu filmmaker Hanumanth Rao Raghavapudi’s upcoming trilingual film, starring Dulquer Salmaan, will go on floors from March-end, the director told Silverscreen India.


The untitled film will be a “love story” in which Dulquer will play the role of Lieutenant Ram. The film marks Dulquer’s first collaboration with Raghavapudi.

Speaking to Silverscreen India, Raghavapudi said, “Right now we are doing the pre-production, so we are in the planning stages. Most probably we will be starting to shoot by this month. We have locations Kashmir, but we are still figuring out where to start the shoot, whether Kashmir or Hyderabad.”

“It is a period film, so we are trying to figure out how to crack the period structure. Many of them are tough locations to achieve. Still, we are unsure of the locations and dates because there are many logistics, definitely, we are starting the shoot by this month-end itself but we are still figuring out how to go about it,” he said.

The film’s music will be composed by Vishal Chandrashekhar. It is produced by Swapna Cinema and presented by Vyjayanthi Movies. The film will release in three languages- Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. The director said that the film will be shot simultaneously in all the three languages.

The film was first announced in July 2020. The director had described it as a ‘classified love story’. In January, the director had posted a few photos of the team from Kashmir as part of the pre-production work.


The film will feature Hindi actor Mrunal Thakur alongside Dulquer, according to reports, making this her debut film in Telugu.

Thakur, who rose to fame as a television actor, has starred opposite Hrithik Roshan in Super 30 (2019) and was last seen Netflix’s horror anthology film Ghost Stories in filmmaker Karan Johar’s segment.  Thakur will also be seen in the upcoming Hindi film Jersey alongside Shahid Kapoor.
