The Hanu Raghavapudi directorial Padi Padi Leche Manasu stars Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi as the lead pair. The film’s shooting is progressing at a good speed and we hear from sources close to the film unit that its release date will be December 21.

Interestingly, the shooting of Padi Padi Leche Manasu is almost in the last stage but it will be in the post-production for a long time for reasons best known to the filmmakers. A major portion of the film has been shot in Kolkata and the cast and crew will be flying down to Nepal where the last schedule of the film will happen.

Touted to be a rom-com, a genre that Hanu Raghavapudi excels in, reports from Tollywood are that director has etched out the characters of the lead pair so well that it will be a completely performance-oriented role for them.

The star cast also includes Murali Sharma, Suhasini Maniratnam and Priya Raman. Padi Padi Leche Manasu is being produced by Prasad Chukkapalli and Sudhakar Cherukuri under the banner Sri Lakshmi Venkateswara Cinemas. Vishal Chandrasekar is composing music for this venture. The film will have Sai Pallavi playing a medical student.

Sai Pallavi is also part of Dhanush’s Maari 2 helmed by Balaji Mohan apart from being part of Suriya's NGK directed by Selvaraghavan. Maari 2 will also star Mollywood star Tovino Thomas.

Sai Pallavi made her debut in the Tamil film industry with the AL Vijay directorial Diya this year and has a couple of movies lined up for release. Sharwanand, on the other hand, is part of untitled Sudheer Varma directorial and is paired opposite Kajal Aggarwal and Nitya Menen in the film.
