Kiara Advani already worked with Ram Charan in Vinaya Vidheya Rama which was released in theaters almost 3 years ago. The movie failed to do wonders at the box office but fans loved the chemistry between the Good Newwz actress and the Telugu superstar. She also starred opposite Mohan Babu in Bharat Ane Nenu which received a good response at the box office.
Kiara Advani has also starred in multiple Tollywood musical videos and has a good following in the Southern region. The actress currently has Shershaah with rumored beau Sidharth Malhotra lined up for release next.
The movie is slated to release on Amazon Prime on 12 August 2021. The actress has been regularly sharing new video clips and promos from the movie. She is also part of Bhul Bhulaiyaa 2 which has Kartik Aaryan in the lead and Jug Jugg Jeeyo with Varun Dhawan.
Her last two OTT Releases, Laxmii and Indoo Ki Jawani failed to impress the audience but it has not affected the popularity of Kiara Advani who continues to be the most loved actress of Bollywood today.
