Actors Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi will be seen together on screen for the first time in Happy Days and Fidaa-fame Sekhar Kammula’s upcoming project. The untitled film, speculated to be a romantic musical, went on floors yesterday in Hyderabad. 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 pictures of the actors from the set have created a lot of buzz amongst fans.

Reportedly, both the actors will speak in the Telangana dialect in the film. Incidentally, Pallavi dubbed for Fidaa in the same dialect, and a video of the dubbing session was hugely popular on YouTube. This is Chaitanya’s 20th film, and he will be seen as a village youth who migrates to the city in search of a livelihood. The film is being presented by Amigos Creations, and produced by Narayan Das K Narang and P Ram Mohan Rao under Sri Venkateswara Cinemas’ LLP banner.

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.
Pallavi, who has had a couple of false starts in Tamil, most recently with Selvaraghavan’s Suriya-starrer NGK, plays a naxalite in Venu Udugula’s period drama Virata Parvam 1992. The film features Rana Daggubati and Nandita Das in pivotal roles.
