Actress Keerthy Suresh’s upcoming Telugu film Miss India will hit the screens on 17 April, its makers revealed by releasing a poster.

Announcing the release date, the makers unveiled a special poster on International Women’s Day yesterday. Keerthy took to Twitter to share the poster.

Keerthy has shed more than 15 kilos to play a supermodel in the film. Miss India will be her first major Telugu release since she starred in the National award-winning film Mahanati (2018), biopic of the legendary Southern star Savitri.

Directed by Narendra Nath, the film also features Jagapathi Babu, Naveen Chandra, Rajendra Prasad, Naresh, Bhanushree Mehra, Sumanth S, Poojitha Ponnada, Kamal Kamaraju and Nadiya in crucial roles.

Keerthy was recently signed on to star opposite Ajay Devgn in Maidaan (2020), a biopic of independent India's first national football coach. However, she was eventually replaced as the makers felt she looked too young for the part of a mother after losing weight for Miss India.

Priyamani, who was recently seen in the web-series The Family Man, was then signed on as Keerthy’s replacement.

Keerthy has three more projects in her kitty. A Tamil horror thriller titled Penguin (2020) and a yet-untitled Telugu sports romedy with filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor are in the offing. The second film also features Aadhi Pinisetty in a crucial role.

Keerthy is also part of Rajinikanth’s upcoming Tamil film Annaatthe (2020), in which she will be seen playing the superstar's sister.
