Adivi Sesh established himself as an actor who does not shy away from doing unconventional roles and movies which are not mainstream Tollywood. Ever since the mystery thriller Kshanam was released, Adivi Sesh has been on a roll with notable hits and Sesh’s last movie Goodachari won accolades for its gripping screenplay so much so that a sequel was announced. Sesh’s next movie Major is one of the highly anticipated movies of the industry.
Adivi Sesh took to Twitter to announce the news of Saiee Manjrekar, who will be joining the cast of Major. Sesh said Saiee’s role will have equal measures of intensity and innocence in her role for the movie. Saiee Manjrekar shot to fame when she appeared in the Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3.

Major is based on the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan who lost his life in the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Sandeep Unnikrishnan is an Ashoka Chakra recipient, India’s highest peacetime military decoration awarded for valour, courageous action or self-sacrifice away from the battlefield. Adivi Sesh will be reprising the role of Sandeep Unnikrishnan in Major.
Major will be jointly produced by Mahesh Babu, Sony Pictures India and A+S Movies. This movie will also mark the debut for Mahesh Babu as a producer with his banner GMB Entertainments. Sobhita Dhulipala would be starring in Major in an emotional role. Shobita’s role will have its own character development arc as well. Shobita Dhulipala was also a part of Goodachari, Adivi Sesh’s last film.
