Krishnan, who will star opposite Akshay Kumar, insisted that she was eager to work with Priyadarshan again after the pair worked together on Tamil film Lesa Lesa.
She is quoted as saying: "This is a huge bonus for me. I owe my debut in Tamil (Lesa Lesa) to Priyan and this time, the canvas seems to be even bigger.
"There are some directors with whom you long to work and Priyan is one among them. In his movies, heroines are not mere dolls giving company to the lead man in the songs. I could not wait for the shoot to begin."
Khatta Meetha is scheduled to begin shooting later this month.
