Nagarjuna Akkineni is currently busy working on the prestigious project Bangarraju. Kalyan Krishna is the film’s director. The film is gearing up for a release during Sankranthi. Nag is also acting in a film titled The Ghost, directed by Praveen Sattaru. The reports say that the makers are yet to finalize the leading lady of the film. Amala Akkineni who was initially approached by the team has given a big shock to the makers.
Kajal Aggarwal was the first choice of the film unit. The actress even joined the film’s shoot but she had to walk out of the film because of her pregnancy. However, the actress did not confirm the same officially yet.
As soon as Kajal walked out of the film, the makers immediately considered a bunch of heroines from Telugu as well as Hindi. At a point, the news of Amala Paul’s selection did rounds in the media as well. But, here is a twist.
Amala Paul showed interest to be a part of the project and the makers are also happy to shoot with her. However, the latest reports confirm that the film unit dropped their plan to rope in Amala Paul as she quoted a remuneration of more than a crore.
Considering Amala’s market in Telugu, the makers are not interested to pay her the same and are now considering other actors. Mehreen is reportedly in talks with the makers and final confirmation will be out soon.
