But apparently it is over with Rachita Ram being selected for the film. As per industry reports,her portion of the shooting will start in the city of Hyderabad from the 30th of July. Kannada superstar Sudeep has been chosen to play the lead role in the remake version. For months now, speculations were doing rounds regarding the casting of the two female leads in the film. Several names Hansika Motwani and Sanvi Srivatsav came up during this period. However, Hansika later denied any part in the film. She posted on her Twitter account that she has not been contacted for the film.
After finalizing Rachita Ram, producers are now searching for a second actress since the script has two heroines. Since Hansika is no more in consideration, it would be interesting to see who is finally selected. The film will pit Sudeep and Prakash Rai for the very first time.
