After the debacle of Trivikram Srinivas directorial Agnyaathavaasi, fans of Jr NTR are a bit sceptical about their favourite star’s next with the director and are a concerned group. It is being said that the failure of the Pawan Kalyan starrer has put immense pressure on Trivikram Srinivas to ensure that the film with Jr NTR turns out to be a good one, not just to keep up his reputation but also to help the distributors of Agnyaathavaasi to recover some losses. And while all this is happening, reports are doing rounds that the makers of Jr NTR-Trivikram film have finalised the lead actress for the film after having considered numerous options. Reports are doing rounds that the makers have signed on Bollywood diva Shraddha Kapoor as the lead actress who will be making her debut in Telugu with Prabhas’ Saaho. It is being said that Trivikram Srinivas was keen to sign on Anu Emmanuel for the film, however, after the failure of Agnyaathavaasi, things have changed apparently.
“The makers are quite keen because they feel Shraddha will make for a fresh pairing with NTR, especially with all the hoopla surrounding her debut in Prabhas’ Saaho. It is to be seen if things work out,” a report in DC quoted a source close to the director. If all these reports are to be believed, then this will be one of the biggest films in Telugu cinema this year and expectations will be sky high too.
NTR’s film with Trivikram was launched in November last year officially and the actor will be seen in a lean and a fitter look in the film. The yet to be titled film will have music by Anirudh Ravichander who also made his debut in Telugu with Agnyaathavaasi. Anirudh’s compositions and background score in the film did manage to impress the Telugu audiences.
