Heroine Payal Rajput to play ‘Shailaja’ in Director Ajay Bhupathi’s ‘Mangalavaaram’

Director Ajay Bhupathi’s ‘RX100’ won the hearts of tollywood and even bollywood audiences too. His much anticipated next has already created quite a buzz amongst the south with its title ‘Mangalavaaram’.

Teaming up with his lucky charm actress RX100 fame Payal Rajput again, the director has now unveiled her first look as ‘Shailaja’ from his new film. Her half naked pose with a gritty emotion in her eyes and a butterfly on her finger makes the poster very interesting. It’s quite bold and emotional.

Interestingly, Ajay is debuting as a producer in this film along with Swathi Gunupati and Suresh Varma M. It’s a joint venture of Mudra Media Works and A Creative Works releasing in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam languages.

Speaking about the engaging first look, the director-producer Ajay Bhupati said that “ ‘Mangalavaaram’ is a village-based action-thriller settled in 90’s. It sticks to our nativity while being Raw and Rustic to visuals and emotions. Payal’s character will be remembered for a long time after watching this movie in the theaters. It’s a new-genre film that’s never been featured in Indian Cinema. There are 30 characters in the story and every character has got a certain place in the larger scheme of the film. Each and every character is important”

Producers Swathi Gunupati and Suresh Varma M said, “Just like Indu from RX100, Ajay Bhupati’s ‘Mangalavaaram’ Shailaja will also be remembered for a longtime. We’ve wrapped up 75 days of the shoot. Making it on high technical standards, we’re planning to wind up the last schedule of the movie next month. The concept is exciting, and the content is shaping up amazingly well. ‘Kantara’ fame Ajaneesh Loknath has been roped in to compose music.”
