Not many know that Shravya, who made a debut with Rose, is the daughter of star couple Om Prakash Rao who is a well-known comedian and eminent director and Rekha Das who was also seen in comic roles. Om Prakash Rao who has directed movies like AK-47, Kalsipalya and Bheema Teeradalli, is known for the racy screenplays with extensive action sequences backed with subtle romance.

Though Rose has managed to receive mixed response from the audience, looks like the lead actress Shravya's career is already on a roll!  Her first film Loosegalu opposite Shriki of Olave Mandara fame, bombed at the box office, yet Shravya had bagged Rose even before the completion of Loosegalu. And now she has been signed opposite to Nagashekar for Katte. The movie is directed by none other than her father Om Prakash Rao himself! 

Speaking about the same, Shravya confirmed that she will be acting in the movie. She said "When my dad approached me for Katte, I accepted it without second thought. It’s not just because my dad was directing it, but because it was an offer from a good director and technician. It is a big deal that he chose me for the part. I didn't have to think too much because he definitely knows what is best for his daughter and his film". 

Nagashekar, who has directed movies like Sanju Weds Geetha, will be essaying the lead role in Katte with Shravya as the lead actress. The story is said to be raw and rural, but the dominant elements would be romance and comedy. Shooting of the film is expected to start from August 1st.
