The darling of South India, Sai Pallavi, has been one of the most sought-after actresses in recent times and currently has two big films in Telugu lined up next. Apart from the Rana Daggubati and Priyamani starrer, Virata Parvam, the Premam actress will also be seen in the highly-anticipated film, Love Story, alongside Naga Chaitanya. The upcoming romantic drama marks Sai Pallavi's reunion with acclaimed Telugu director Sekhar Kammula after their 2017 film, Fidaa, and is incidentally also his return to cinema after nearly three years. 

With production on Love Story getting stalled in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic crisis and the subsequent nationwide lockdown, production house Sree Venkateswara Cinemas has now issued a statement saying the film's shooting is resuming once again starting today (September 7) in Hyderabad with all safety precautions in place. They have also said that the film's crew will be limited to 15 members, who along with the cast, will undergo a periodic COVID-19 test before they enter the shooting spot and will not be allowed to leave the sets until each day’s production gets wrapped. The banner has also stated that the shoot will be completed in a single schedule with the team adhering to the social distancing norms and guidelines issued by the government. 

Jointly bankrolled by Asian Cinemas, Amigos Creations and Sree Venkateswara Creations, Love Story will have music composed by Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman's student, Ch Pawan. The film will have Naga Chaitanya reportedly playing the role of a Telangana youth, with the makers releasing a preview promo for the 'Ay Pilla' song featuring the actor with Sai Pallavi, which has since generated a lot of curiosity among fans. 

There are tremendous expectations surrounding i as it will feature Sai Pallavi once again in a Telugu film after the 2018 venture, Padi Padi Leche Manasu, as she was last seen in NGK in Tamil opposite Suriya under Selvaraghavan's direction. The Maari 2 actress had recently appeared for the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE) in Trichy, with her selfies with fans after the exams going viral on social media. Naga Chaitanya will be seen in Love Story after last year's Majili and Venky Mama, with the upcoming film also starring Rao Ramesh, Posani Krishna Murali, Devayani among others in major supporting roles.
