Vikram Kumar Confirms Film With Kalyani Priyadarshan

Vikram Kumar, Kalyani

Director Vikram Kumar recently confirmed that Kalyani – director Priyadarshan and actress Lissy’s daughter, will soon make her acting debut in his film. Speaking to IANS, the 24 director said that she would be starring as the female lead in Akhil Akkineni’s second film.

“I had worked as an assistant with Priyadarshan sir and I have known his daughter since she was a kid. We felt this would be a great launch pad for Kalyani. She is expected to join the sets in ten days time,” he said.


The film is still in its pre-production stage, with rest of the cast and crew yet to be confirmed. The team has reportedly begun shooting for action sequences. Said to be a romantic-action one, the yet-to-be titled film is produced by Akhil’s father, Nagarjuna Akkineni. 

Incidentally, the film does not mark Kalyani’s debut in cinema. She earlier worked as an assistant director in the Vikram-Nayanthara film Iru Mugan last year.

Vikram Kumar’s film officially went on the floors in April this year, and is Annapurna Studios’ 29th production.
