Shiva Nirvana’s next, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha, is titled Kushi (2022). The film is due to be released on 23 December in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam for the Christmas holidays.

The romantic love story, announced last month, reunites the Mahanati (2018) co-stars. A new motion poster released by the makers and the stars gives a hint to which way the story might go.

Set against the backdrop of snowy mountains in Kashmir, the motion poster shows the two stars tied together in 'the most complicated knot ever'. Deverakonda is wearing sunglasses and smoking a cigarette while Samantha, dressed in wedding finery, looks back at him.

The film also features Jayaram, Sachin Khedekar, Ali, Vennela Kishore and Rahul Ramakrishna. Produced by Mythri Movie Makers, the score has been composed by Hisham Abdul Vaahab.

Deverekonda is awaiting his Hindi debut in the bilingual Liger (2022), directed by Puri Jagannadh. Meanwhile, Samantha has the films Shaakuntalam and Yashoda (2022) lined up for release this year and will make her Hollywood debut with the international production, Arrangements Of Love, directed by Philip John.
