According to a leading daily, upcoming actor Aakansha Singh has been roped in to play the female lead opposite veteran star Nagarjuna in his eagerly awaited multi-starrer with Nani. Confirming this, a source said that she will be joining the team during the next schedule.
“After tossing up a few names, the team has now settled on Aakanksha, who made an impressive debut with Malli Raava. She will begin shooting for her portions in the next schedule,” added the source
If this turns out to be true it will be a good break for the young actor.
In case you did not know, the film is touted to be an action-comedy and will see Nani act opposite Rashmika Mandanna. The ‘Natural Star’ and Nags have already joined the shoot and seem to be getting along well. A few days ago, Nani had said that shooting with T-town’s ‘King’ is a dream come true for him.
Interestingly, Nags is going through a good phase on the professional front. He was last seen in Raju Gari Gadhi 2 and received praise for his work. The film was a horror-comedy and did decent business at the box office. At present, he also has Officer in his kitty. It is an action-drama and has been directed by RGV. While announcing the film, he had said that is going to be pretty different from his previous outings.
“I am extremely excited that I am doing a film with Nagarjuna after nearly 25 years but contrary to some uninformed media speculations, this new film is nothing to do with Shiva, neither in character nor in story content. It’s a very different but an extremely realistic action film set against a story such as neither me nor Nagarjuna has ever done before,” he had written on FB.
As far as Nani is concerned, he was last seen in KAY which opened to a mixed response at the box office.
