She was seen having dinner with her father who is also producer/director. The entire unit was flying to Slovenia to shoot for a song sequence.

She was pampered on the sets with good food and being a food lover, she loved the local cuisine she was served.

After Banaganapalle Mangoes 06-May-2017
After Banaganapalle Mangoes, state to pitch four more crops for GI tag VISAKHAPATNAM: With the Banaganapalle mangoes getting GI (Geographical Indication) registration tag recently, the horticulture department is gearing up to pitch four more horticultural crops for the tag. As per the proposal mooted last year, the department will seek to obtain GI tag for Tella Chekkerakeli Banana grown in coastal districts, Cashew from Palasa in Srikakulam, Duggirala Turmeric in Guntur and KP Onion in Rayalseema during the next one year. Horticulture department commissioner Chiranjiv Chowdhary told TOI: "We had identified five products for GI tag last year, out of which we went ahead with Banaganapalle mangoes first, in view of its popularity. Now that we are familiar with the process, we will go ahead ahead with the other four products." "The process is likely to take about one year as sufficient time has to be given to the public to raise objections if any. Besides, other formalities need to be completed," he added. Obtaining the tag will boost exports, he said. "We are developing marketing linkages and also going to provide publicity so that farmers can make the most of it. We have a lot of work to do as these are the special products of AP. Our aim is to provide value to the products by getting them the tag which helps in branding and value addition," Chowdhary said. As per the application made to the GI Registry, Banaganapalle mangoes also known as Beneshan, Baneshan, Beni...

A victory of ‘Swachha’ campaign 06-May-2017
Social media campaigns lead Vizag to record highest citizen participation as the city climbs to the third spot in Swachh Survekshan - 2017 Visakhapatnam or Vizag is not referred to as the evergreen, clean city for nothing: a canopy of greens in the hills surrounding the city, beautiful parks and a picturesque Beach Road reported to be one of the longest in the world. The City of Destiny catapulting to the third place in this year’s Swachh Survekshan - a massive survey rating cleanliness efforts put in by municipalities in 434 Indian cities - has reaffirmed the image it shares among the top clean cities of the country. It was celebration time for the people of Vizag with social media flooded with euphoric messages after Visakhapatnam climbed two places up in this year’s survey compared to its fifth position in 2016. Unlike the previous edition, this year’s Swachh Survekshan gave significant weightage to what citizens feel, with citizens’ feedback making up almost one third of the points given (600 marks were given to citizen feedback apart from 900 marks for municipal data and 500 marks for independent assessment). What perhaps worked out in favour of Vizag, apart from the municipal data, was the effective social media campaign led by the Residents Welfare Associations and the team of Swachh Bharat ambassador which hugely improved citizen participation in the survey. According to the data available on the Swachh Bharat website, 1,92,651 Vizagites participated in ...
