Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi starrer NC19 is now Love Story. The announcement came with the first look poster of the film. Anand, Happy Days and Fidaa-fame Sekhar Kammula is helming the project with Amigos Creations presenting the film and Narayan Das K Narang and P Ram Mohan Rao producing it under their Sri Venkateswara Cinemas’ LLP banner. This is Sekhar’s first project with Chaitanya and second with Pallavi, who became a household name in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh after Fidaa, which marked her debut in the Telugu industry. The lead pair will also be seen together on screen for the first time.
Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi’s characters seem to share an emotional moment in the first look poster.

Love Story is speculated to be a romantic musical. The movie began shoot last year in November in Hyderabad.
On the technical front, Pawan Ch is composing music, Vijay C Kumar is handling the camera, and Marthand K Venkatesh is editing. Bhaskar Batla and Suddala Ashok Teja have been brought onboard for penning the lyrics.
Both the actors will reportedly speak in the Telangana dialect in the film. Incidentally, Pallavi dubbed for Fidaa in the same dialect, and a video of the dubbing session is hugely popular on YouTube. This is Chaitanya’s 19th film, and he will be seen as a village youth who migrates to the city in search of a livelihood.
A video titled ‘The World of #NC19’ featuring glimpses of NC’s character in the film was released on his birthday. He is seen as a responsible boy-next-door bubbling with energy.

Following the tremendous success of Fidaa, Sekhar Kammula had started work on a youthful entertainer, but the project that was supposed to star newcomers was dropped since he was not very happy with the script, it was reported.
Here is the first look poster:
