After a rather lacklustre debut, LuckShruti Hassan has signed another film, this time in Telugu.

The Walt Disney production is a fantasy film scheduled for release in January, 2011.

The untitled movie also stars Siddharth of Rang De Basanti fame. It is being directed by National Award winning director Prakash Rao Kovelamudi.

This fantasy adventure film is set in the fictitious land of Sangarashtra.

The story focuses on the journey of a nine-year-old girl (Hrishitha) with special healing powers and her quest to save Sangarashtra from the tyranny of an evil Queen, played by Lakshmi Manchu. 

Siddharth plays a blind swordsman who protects the little girl. Shruti plays a gypsy.
