She was spotted at the airport heading to Hyderbad for Nag Ashwin’s upcoming movie ‘Project-K’. In her cropped lavender blazer-pant set, the actress was seen in a jolly mood.

Starring pan-India star Prabhas Uppalapati as the hero, the movie is said to be Nag Ashwin’s much-hyped venture. Touted to be a movie with a big budget, the movie is to feature megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a key role as well.

Prabhas, who is currently busy with ‘Salaar’ and ‘Aadipurush’, has reportedly allocated bulk dates for the project. A major portion of the film will be shot in special sets that are laid up in Hyderabad’s famous Ramoji Film City.

Telugu’s ace producer C. Ashwini Dutt is bankrolling this mega-budget project and the film is expected to hit the screens in 2023.
