Saiee Manjrekar, who made her mark in Bollywood opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg 3, has been roped in to play an important role in Major directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka.
Major, a bilingual shot simultaneously in Telugu and Hindu, is inspired by the life of NSG commando Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who was martyred in the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008.
The film stars Adivi Sesh in the title role and actress Sobhita Dhulipala is playing an important part in the film.
Saiee will begin shooting for the film next month in Hyderabad. So far, more than 50 percent of the filming is already done.
Major is produced by Sony Pictures Films India in association with Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu’s GMB Entertainment and A+S Movies. The film is all set for a 2021 summer release.
