Actor Anu Emmanuel has been roped in to play one of the leading ladies in upcoming Telugu-Tamil action-drama Maha Samudram, which also stars Siddharth and Sharwanand. The makers of the film announced this development on Monday via a special poster and statement.

The film features two heroines. It was announced last week that Aditi Rao Hydari would be playing one of the leads.

Last seen on screen in Tamil film Namma Veettu Pillai (2019), Anu is currently shooting for the Telugu film Alludu Adhurs. She’s expected to commence shooting for Maha Samudram in November.  

Directed by Ajay Bhupathi, the film marks Siddharth’s return to Telugu cinema after a hiatus of seven years. This project will mark the maiden collaboration of Siddharth and Sharwanand. Amid rumours that Siddharth could be seen playing a negative role, the makers said in a statement that the actor was looking for the right Telugu project to make a comeback and he finally found one.

Siddharth was last seen on screen in Tamil horror-thriller Aruvam (2019), in which he played a food safety officer. He will next be seen in Shankar’s Indian 2, which also stars Kamal Haasan, Rakul Preet Singh and Kajal Aggarwal.
