Akhanda success: Scoring a hit post-pandemic is not an easy job. Especially, after the Coronavirus lockdowns, the film industry underwent a lot of struggles. The audience is not easily arriving at theatres. However, the film Akhanda has changed a lot of aspects. Balakrishna is the film’s actor and the film is his third outing with director Boyapati Srinu. Usually, a lot of actors turn down the films but in the case of Akhanda, many heroines turned down the offer and the film’s success will surely hit them.
Going by the speculations in the film industry, we came to know that there are multiple heroines who turned down the offer of playing the female lead in Balakrishna’s Akhanda.
Pragya Jaiswal played the romantic interest of Balakrishna in the film. Interestingly, Balakrishna and director Boyapati approached many other actors before zeroing down Pragya Jaiswal as the film’s heroine.
Kajal Aggarwal was the first one to be approached for the female lead in the movie. After she turned down the film’s offer, the film unit then approached Payal Rajput for the film’s leading lady character. And then, the team approached Rakul Preet Singh, Catherine Tresa, Sayyeshaa Saigal, and others for the heroine’s role.
Finally, the offer went to Pragya Jaiswal who scored a massive success now. All those who turned down the offer will surely regret their decision.
