Adivi Sesh to work next with Shruti Haasan 

Adivi Sesh, who has recently begun filming for G2, the sequel of his 2018 film Goodachari, will be working next with Shruti Haasan in a pan-India action drama. The announcement was made on Tuesday with a simple poster, which had the words #SesheXShruti etched on it. The film's title as well as a host of character posters will be unveiled in the days to come.

The film will be directed by debut filmmaker Shaneil Deo, with Sesh and Shaneil sharing the screenwriting credits. This will be Adivi's seventh film as a screenwriter, after Karma (2010), which was also directed by him, followed by Kshanam (2016), Goodachari (2018), Evaru (2019), Major (2022) and Goodachari 2. To the uninitiated, Fiji-born, California-raised, cinematographer Shaneil Deo is a frequent collaborator of Sesh's, having worked as a DoP in Kshanam and Goodachari. Recent works of the cinematographer include Krishna and His Leela (2020) and Wild Dog (2021). This project will be his feature debut. He has previously directed a coming-of-age short titled Layla (2015), which was officially selected for the Cannes Film Festival. 

The film, currently in pre-production, is produced by Supriya Yarlagadda, the head honcho of Annapurna Studios. Suneil Narang of Asian Cinemas will be co-producing the film. Supriya, who made her acting debut opposite Pawan Kalyan back in Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi (1996), starred in a supporting role in Goodachari. To date, these are her two appearances as an actor. This film will mark her second collaboration with Adivi Sesh, albeit as a producer. 

#SesheXShruti will be Sesh's second Hindi release after Major. Regarding the film's multilingual treatment, the makers have announced that the film will be shot separately in different languages, with the story being suitably adapted to the nuances of Hindi and Telugu cultures.
