No Comments

Shraddha Kapoor who is making debut in Tollywood opposite Prabhas in “Saaho” is in much demand.

Though she is good friends with Prabhas, Shraddha reportedly turned down an offer from Prabhas’s guru S S Rajamouli.

According to Bollywood media, Rajamouli offered a role to Shraddha Kapoor for his upcoming film “RRR” to star opposite NTR Jr.

Since Alia Bhatt has been cast opposite Ram Charan in the film and the foreign actress Daisy walked out of the movie for family reasons, Rajamouli reportedly changed his decision not to cast another foreign actress and approached Shraddha Kapoor.

As per Bollywood media, she has turned down the mega project as she is tired of being part of big films that take many months’ time to get finished.

She has been shooting for “Saaho” for the past two years and doesn’t want to do a similar big-budgeted movie like “RRR” that is being mounted on large scale with estimated budget of Rs 350 Cr.

“RRR” has NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn as the principal cast. DVV Danayya is producing this movie.

International actress Daisy Edgar Jones, who has starred in films such as “Pond Life” and “War of the Worlds”, has opted out of filmmaker S.S. Rajamoulis upcoming action multi-starrer “RRR” citing family reasons.

Daisy took to her Instagram page to share the news of opting out of the film, which stars Ram Charan and Jr. NTR.

“‘RRR’, unfortunately due to family circumstances I am unable to participate in filming for this wonderful film. The script is truly brilliant and it’s such a great character. I hope whomever they cast, receives as warm a welcome as I have and I wish the production all the best,” Daisy posted on her Instagram page.

In the film, Daisy was supposed to be paired with Jr. NTR.

A tweet from the official account of “RRR” read: “Due to unavoidable circumstances, Daisy Edgar Jones is no longer part of our film. We hope she has a brilliant future.”

Last month, speaking to reporters, Rajamouli said that “RRR”, which is being made on a lavish scale, will be a fictional story based on two real-life heroes and freedom fighters – Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.

“This is a fictional story set in 1920s pre-independence era. Most of us are well aware of the stories of Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. We know they are popular freedom fighters and were fearless. What most of us don’t know is that there are gaps in the lives of these revolutionaries that we don’t know about. We don’t know what happened in their lives in these years,” Rajamouli said.

“‘RRR’ will be a fictional story of what could have happened in the lives of Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem in those years when they had disappeared. What if they had met and trained themselves to fight for the same cause,” he said.

While Jr. NTR, otherwise known as Tarak, will be seen as Komaram Bheem, Ram Charan will be playing Alluri Seetharama Raju.

“RRR” also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Samuthirakani in key roles.

The film will hit the screens worldwide on July 30, 2020 in 10 Indian languages.

Keerthy Suresh is all set to enter Bollywood with a biggie. She has been signed up as the female lead in Ajay Devgn’s upcoming film directed by Amit Sharma.

The director who debuted with blockbuster Badhaai Ho is making a biopic of Syed Abdul Raheem, late legendary football coach of Indian National team.

Boney Kapoor is producing the film that will go to floors in June. Keerthy Suresh has been signed up as the female lead given her popularity across South India.

The team is hoping that her presence will enhance the reach of the film in Southern markets. However, the film is not a multi-lingual. It will be made in Hindi and may get dubbed into South Indian languages.

This is a great start for Keerthy Suresh in B town as the expectations are very high on this Amit Sharma – Ajay Devgn film.

Keerthy Suresh who is already a top star in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam cinema can pin high hopes on her Bollywood debut.
