Manmadha Leelai, which stars Ashok Selvan, Samyuktha Hegde, Riya Suman, and Smruthi Venkat will hit theatres on April 1.

Meanwhile, Chaitanya, whose last release was Bangarraju, is currently shooting for his maiden web series Dootha. His maiden Hindi film, Laal Singh Chaddha, headlined by Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, is slated for release on August 11. The Love Story-actor also has Thank You, and an untitled film directed by Rahul Sankrityan in the pipeline.
