Actress Sobhita Dhulipala has bagged a key role in upcoming bilingual film Major, based on the life of Major Unni Krishnan.

Welcoming Dhulipala on board, actor Adivi Sesh tweeted: “It’s so amazing to reunite with Sobhita after Goodachari. This time, she is going to have her own individual story track in the film. She is going to be dynamite in a role with emotional depth. Major is a story for all of India. Looking forward to it.”

Major, which is being directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, marks the reunion of Sesh and Dhulipala after Goodachari (2018). The film is being simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi.

The film, which will see Sesh step into the shoes of Major Unnikrishnan, who rescued hostages during the 26/11 terror attack on the Taj Hotel in Mumbai and perished in his valorous mission, is being produced by Mahesh Babu and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Meanwhile, Dhulipala recently wrapped up shooting for her maiden full-fledged Malayalam film Kurup, which is centered on Sukumara Kurup, a family man who, after reading a crime involving embezzlement of insurance money in Germany, got motivated to insure and script his own death by murdering a man, Chacko, to lay his hands on the money.

It’s been over three decades since the heinous incident and Sukumara is still at large. Dulquer will be seen playing Kurup in the film, which will reunite him with Srinath after seven years for the second time. They had previously worked together in Second Show (2012).

Sobhita also has Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan (2021) lined up. The project marks her first collaboration with the veteran filmmaker
