Priyadarshan Confirms His Daughter's Telugu Debut

Vikram Kumar and his team have been in hunt for the female lead from sometime and they are quite keen on roping fresh face for the interesting role in this untitled project.

Rumours have it that Kalyani might follow the footsteps of her mother and choose acting profession by starring opposite Nagarjuna's son Akhil Akkineni in the upcoming Telugu movie directed by Vikram Kumar.

Daughter of acclaimed filmmaker Priyadarshan and actor Lissy, Kalyani made her debut in the film industry as an assistant director.

After a long time, the makers of Akhil's second film finally zeroed in the actress to romance Akhil in the film.

She had worked in the movie Iru Mugan, which had Vikram and Nayanthara as the lead pair.

Since Akhil's debut tanked without a trace, Nag is taking special care on his 2nd film which is a romantic caper. We felt this would be a great launch pad for Kalyani. According to our sources, she has been cast opposite Akhil Akkineni in his second movie that is being directed by Vikram Kumar of "Manam" and "24". Kalyani will join the sets from the next schedule which is expected to start soon.

"We are now shooting some action sequences". The film, which is produced under Nagarjuna's production banner, is going to be released by the end of the year.
