Sundeep Kishan and Varun Sandesh are teaming up for the first time for a crime comedy. The film has been officially titled as Dopidi and sources say that the story is set in the backdrop of a bank robbery. Melanie Kannokada, who was recently seen in Love, Lies and Seeta, is playing the lead role in the film. Siraj Kalla, a protege of Raj & DK, is directing the film and for the past few days, the film is being shot in several locations in Hyderabad.
After directing films like Flavours, 99 and Shor in the City, Raj & DK are producing thefilm. “For years, our friends and family have been asking us to make a Telugu film. It’s been on our minds forever too, since we grew up on a diet of Telugu films! So when Siraj approached us during the filming of Shor with this idea, we thought it was a terrific film to launch our production in Telugu. This film appeals to our sensibilities and is the kind of film our production company would like to nurture and foster. We loved the script and kept laughing through it, and we believe the audiences will love it too!” Rajand DK said.
