Sharing her experience with the media, Ms Dhulipala revealed, “I had auditioned for it almost five years ago and I then got a call back in a few days for a screen test with Dev. I remember it was on the day I was leaving for the Cannes Film festival with my first film Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016). All these years later, along with many turns in the journey of the film and our individual lives, it looks like we belonged with each other all along.”
Sobhita, who was last seen in Ghost Stories, rose to fame with Amazon Prime Video’s Made In Heaven. She has worked in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, and Malayalam films. The Vizag girl’s upcoming projects are Major, starring Advi Sesh, Kurup with Dulquer Salmaan, Mani Ratnam’s Tamil magnum opus, and Made In Heaven S2.
