The film will release on April 2.
Touted to be a dance drama, Love Story will have Naga Chaitanya speaking the Telangana dialect, a first in his career. Reports suggest that he underwent special training to get the dialect right. From the first look video which was released a little while ago, it seems Chaitanya is playing the role of a youngster working in a gym. This is his next romance film after the successful run of Majili alongside Samantha last year.
Love Story is being bankrolled by Narayan Das K Narang and Puskur Ram Mohan Rao under the banner of Asian Cinemas. Pavan, a product of AR Rahman's KM Music Conservatory, is composing music for this flick.
Meanwhile, Sai Pallavi was last seen in Telugu in Padi Padi Leche Manasu. Her Telugu debut film Fidaa also starred Varun Tej Konidela. The movie released in 2017 and was met with praise from audiences and critics alike. The movie fared well at the box office, making around Rs 90 crore.
The film also saw a bevy of actors including Sai Chand, Satyam Rajesh, and others in important supporting roles. Actor Harshvardhan Rane played a small cameo in the movie. The movie’s songs, composed by Music by Shakti Kanth Karthick were also well-received. The film bagged a total of nine Filmfare award nominations and won in four categories.
