Allu Arjun has wrapped up the shooting of Duvvada Jagannadham and has commenced work on his upcoming film which is titled Naa Peru Surya. The film is being directed by Vakkantham Vamsi who will mark his debut as a director after having written stories for many hit movies. The film was officially launched recently in Hyderabad and the muhurat shot was completed successfully.
The makers of Naa Peru Surya were on the lookout for a female lead role for this film and were monitoring all the South Indian industries for this. The makers approached Kannada actress Rashmika Mandanna who shot to fame with super hit film Kirik Party. According to reports, the actress was given the narration and everything was going fine so far.
Reports are coming out now that Rashmika Mandanna has been replaced by Nivetha Thomas who is now the most sought-after actress in South India. With her acting prowess in Gentleman, Nivetha Thomas has grabbed all the attention in the industry and is now being flooded with offers.
According to sources close to the unit, the makers of Naa Peru Surya had a photo-shoot session with Nivetha Thomas recently and are apparently convinced that she would be able to fit the bill. If everything goes well, Nivetha might play the female lead role in Naa Peru Surya.
Nivetha Thomas currently has Ninnu Kori lined up for release on July 7th which also features Natural Star Nani and Aadhi Pinisetty. Ninnu Kori is directed debutante Shiva Nirvana and is being produced by DVV Dhanaya.
