It’s a happy moment of celebration for Saiee as she joins bilingual film ‘Major’ starring Adivi Sesh in the title role.
One of the very few actors who did brilliant acting in her debut film, Saiee has surely managed to impress the fans, audiences and critics and has proved that she is here to stay.
Actress Sobhita Dhulipala also will be seen playing an important role in the film. The film will be directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka.
Major is going to be a bilingual film that would be shot in both the Telugu and Hindi languages simultaneously. The film is based and inspired by the real life story of NSG commando Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who was killed by the terrorists and martyred in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks that had taken place in 2008.
Saiee is all set and ready to start her film shooting from the next month in Hyderabad and as of now, almost 50 percent of the film shoot is complete.
During an interview with a leading digital news website Saiee said, “For me, what matters is the script and the impact the character has in the overall narrative. Once you deep dive in the dissection of the character, there are so many beautiful emotions that as an actress I can explore. This is what I saw in the script of Major which is why when it was offered to me, I instantly said a ‘yes’ to it. I am open to working even down South and this one is a bilingual shot simultaneously in two languages. I can’t wait to start shooting for the film.”
Also the film’s director Sashi Kiran Tikka threw light on main points and said, “Casting right is the base for good direction. When we watched her work, we felt that Saiee Manjrekar fit the bill perfectly”.
Sharing his honest thoughts about the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks tragedy, the director Sashi Kiran Tikka said, “None of us were present when the incident happened. All we know is what was in the news that time. The challenge lies in bringing authenticity to our imagination of what happened in reality; and the pressure lies in showing it in a feature film style rather than a documentary style”.
“Major” is being bankrolled and produced under the banner of Sony Pictures Films India in joint association with Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu’s GMB Entertainment and A+S Movies. This film is going to be a 2021 summer release.
