"Size Zero" is a romantic comedy entertainer written by Smt. Kanika Dhillon Kovelamudi and directed by ace filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao's son Prakash Kovelamudi. It is produced by PVP Cinemas and is simultaneously being made for release in both Telugu and Tamil.

The plot of the film is based on the travails of an obese girl, who falls in love with a good-looking man.

A source close to Esha Gupta has confirmed the news about her casting for "Size Zero". "The filmmakers were looking for an actress with a stunning onscreen presence and after considering many candidates, they zeroed-in on Esha.

"Esha will lock horns with Anushka for Arya's attention. Arya will be faced with the predicament of choosing between the stunning Esha and the obese Anushka. Esha loved the role and agreed to come on board after she heard the script. She is excited about her debut in Tollywood," the source added.
