Post Rashmika Mandana, Sreeleela will be the latest actor from Kannada to get her ticket to Tollywood. The KISS and Bharaate heroine will make her Telugu debut in the remake of Pelli Sandadi, which will have her paired with Telugu star Srikanth's son, Roshan Meka.

The sequel will be directed by Gowri Ronanki and will have K Raghavendra Rao supervising the project. Pelli Sandadi, presented by K Krishna Mohan Ro and Arka Media Works, will be an RK Film association Production, with music scored by Keeravani.
