Saiee Manjrekar, the leading lady in Varun Tej’s upcoming boxing drama, Ghani, plays a college student we hear. The film’s director Kiran Korrapati says they saw her performance in Dabangg 3 and went to Mumbai to narrate the script.
“We need an actress who looks cute and bubbly yet comes up with a gripping performance. After seeing Dabangg 3, we narrated the script, and auditioned her. She came on board quickly,” says Kiran, adding that her episodes in the first half are something to watch out.
“She plays Maya. How Ghani (played by Varun Tej) came into her life, and why she likes him will be established in the first half,” says Kiran. “She’s a natural talent. We gave her the script in advance so that she could prepare for her lines in Telugu. She learnt the language and delivered the dialogues with proper diction,” shares the director.
