After generating huge anticipation with the striking similarities between Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and Adivi Sesh in the character posters of the upcoming film ‘Major’, the makers have unveiled the first glimpse of the leading lady Saiee Manjrekar.
The poster features Saiee Manjrekar and Adivi Sesh in their much younger look and in school uniforms while studying in Frank Anthony Public School, Bangalore. The most captivating aspect of the poster is the hand-written letter addressed to Sandeep by his ‘special friend’, expressing her concern for him as he sets off to the National Defence Academy.
Tracing varied phases from teenage years to adulthood, Saiee Manjrekar depicts a character arc spanning over the years along with Adivi Sesh, and will be seen in multiple looks through the film.
Saiee took to her Instagram handle and shared the posters. She wrote, “Her love for him is as endearing as his love for his country.”
