Making a dream debut in Tollywood with Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gadha and then making debut in Bollywood alongside top actress Anushka Sharma in Phillauri, Mehreen Pirzada is having the time of her life currently. With quite a few films in her kitty, Mehreen is shooting for Ravi Teja’s Raja The Great which is being directed by Anil Ravipudi. She is also working on another film with Sai Dharam Tej that is titled, Jawan. Mehreen was also in consideration for the female lead opposite Varun Tej in his upcoming film with Venkat Atluri. But looks like this might not materialise.
Sources close to the production house say that the Phillauri actress had to opt out of the project because of date issues and prior commitments. “It is a romantic love story and the director wants a leaner looking girl,” says the source.
The makers are now on the lookout for a replacement for her and are approaching the top actresses for the role. Reports also suggest that the makers are also looking at actresses from Bollywood too and have started negotiations with a few.
Mehreen is currently in Darjeeling shooting for Raja The Great along with Ravi Teja. Post the completion of this shoot, she will join the shoot of Tamil film Aram Seidhu Pazhagu which will mark her debut in Tamil. Aram Seidhu Pazhagu will be a bilingual with Sundeep Kishan and Vikranth. The film is written and directed by Suseenthiran and produced by Antony. The film is slated to be released in October 2017.
