Ever since A R Murugadoss announced a project with Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu, there has been a good buzz surrounding the movie. However, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the female lead for this action thriller.
Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra was initially rumoured to be a part, but later talks fizzled out.
Next, the director officially confirmed that it was Rakul Preet Singh who was finalised.
Even as shooting for the same is underway in full swing, reports emerged that Nayantara has also been brought on board. Sources said, “Nayantara has been roped in for a crucial role”.
However, the ‘Thupakki’ director dismissed the same.
He said, “Rakul Preet is the only female lead in my film with Mahesh sir”, on his social media page.
Nayantara meanwhile was last seen in the recently-released ‘Iru Mugan’ with Vikram, that made average business.
