Murugadoss to cast Parineeti opposite Mahesh Babu?Published: March 29, 2016
Another Bollywood actress is on her way to the south. Director A R Murugadoss, who will soon start his Tamil-Telugu bilingual with Mahesh Babu in the lead, is planning to have Parineeti Chopra on board as heroine.
“Murugadoss is impressed with the acting skills of Parineeti and the decision to rope in her for his mega project was conveyed to her recently. She is apparently thrilled,” sources said.
The film, which is untitled yet, will be the costliest ever in the career of Mahesh Babu and it is aimed at establishing him in Kollywood in a firm manner. An official announcement is expected to be out soon.
Meanwhile, Murugadoss’ Hindi flick ‘Akira’ is gearing up to hit the screens. A slightly modified version of Tamil hit ‘Mounaguru’, ‘Akira’ has Sonakshi Sinha in the lead. Also, it marks the Bollywood debut of Raai Laxmi.
