Melanie comes to south now !

English actress Melanie Kannokada, who has appeared in several films and sitcoms including Love, Lies & Seeta, Rules of Engagement and The Nine Lives Of Chole King, will now be seen in a Telugu film.

Produced by director duo Raj Nidimuro andKrishna DK (of Shor In The City fame) and directed by his associate Siraj, the film stars Sundeep and Varun Sandesh in the lead.

Sundeep, who is currently working in a couple of Tamil films, including Yaaruda Mahesh andMaranthein Mannithen, confirms, “We’ve wrapped up the shooting of this film, which is a pucca crime comedy.”

We hear that Siraj is planning to reshoot the film in Tamil and release it simultaneously as well. In an earlier interview, Melanie said, “Though I was born and brought up in the US, my parents are from Kerala. I’m open to doing films in India, especially in the south, because I sense a deep connection!”

Looks like her wish has finally come true.
