Having signed a Telugu film, Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL, after a gap of two years, Hansika Motwani is now looking at different projects to up her ante in Telugu. And following through, the actress has decided to debut in a Telugu Web series, which is being directed by G. Ashok. Ashok who had earlier directed Pilla Zamindar and Bhaagamathie.
Making the most of Web series gaining steam in Tollywood, Ashok decided there was a growing scope to narrate raw and candid stories. When the opportunity came by, he wasted no time in casting Haniska Motwani for the lead role. Apparently, Hansika’s acting chops and youthful appeal was the clincher for the actress.
“Director Ashok couldn’t think of any other actress who can bring to life the crazy yet sensible character. To add to that, Hansika’s oomph takes it notches higher. The actress is currently shooting in Mumbai and is all but having a blast on the sets. While her role has been kept under wraps, we expect Hansika to sink her teeth into this new character — just like she’s done in her earlier films,” informs a source close to the development.
The Web series will also feature comic and supporting cast from mainstream Telugu cinema.
