If things fall in place, she will be seen romancing the megastar in the film. Confirming this, a source said that she may join the sets pretty soon.
“Pragya has been approached to play one of the three female leads in the film. While Nayanthara has already been brought on board, a search is on for the other two female leads. The makers have discussed a key role with Pragya, and she’ll be seen romancing Chiranjeevi. If things work out, she could join the sets soon,” added the source.
