A spokesperson for the film told us that the film comes with huge expectations since it marks the coming together of Chaithanya and Samantha after their marriage in 2017. Majili is directed by Shiva Nirvana, who debuted with the film Ninnukori.
“And Majili is geared to be the perfect film for them to come back and act as a couple. It is a romance and its very magical. Majili will be a milestone. Quite like their three films before this,”the spokesperson said.
