Young Telugu actor Adivi Sesh, who is teaming up again with his cousin Sai Kiran, says his next movie is not a remake or inspired from Hrithik Roshan's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD).

Adivi Sesh recently started shooting for his next film, seven months after the release of his last outing Kshanam, which has become big hit at the box office. Recently, actor posted a photo featuring his costars on the sets of the movie. This picture sparked the rumours that the untitled movie may be a remake of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, but the actor has refuted the rumours about the film.

"I don't know where these rumours emerge from. Yes, it's a coming-of-age story, but, it is not ZNMD. You can even compare it with Dil Chahta Hai, Reality Bites, Dil Dhadakne Do and ZNMD... My film belongs to that ilk. But, it's not inspired by any one film. It's a slice-of-life film and it's a fresh genre for Telugu cinema. I hope the audience likes it," Adivi Sesh told Deccan Chronicle.

Adivi Sesh is teaming up with his cousin Sai Kiran Adivi for the first time. The actor says that the director is known for his family dramas and his next directorial venture will be made on the same lines. "It's just the kind of cinema that Sai Kiran specialises in — a drama about emotions and internal conflicts," he said.

Priyadarshi, Adith, Nair and Eden also playing important roles in Adivi Sesh's upcoming movie. "We have roped in Priyadarshi of Pelli Choopulu fame and Adith. We also have actresses Nair and Eden, both from languages other than Telugu making their debut in Tollywood. Parvathi is an award-winning Tamil actress,"

The actor says that this movie is going to be different from Kshanam. "Kshanam was a film that I scripted. This is completely Sai Kiran's creation. It's the result of two different thought processes. This film will be as different from Kshanam as Talaash was from ZNMD, although both were from the same production house," Adivi Sesh added.
