Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu and Tamil star director Murugadoss's recent film Spyder had Rakul Preet Singh in the lead role. Though the film received conflicting opinions, the lead pair Mahesh, Rakul was appreciated by the audience.
This prompted the film unit of Mahesh’s next flick to rope in Rakul as the female lead again. The film is iconic as it is the 25th film of Mahesh Babu under the direction of Vamsi Paidipalli. Veteran producers, Dil Raju and Aswini Dutt are producing the film together.
The first choice of the female lead was Pooja Hegde but now news of roping in Rakul is doing rounds. Producers offered her a remuneration of Rs 1 crore for the film but Rakul is all eager to work with Mahesh.
Mahesh is right now busy with the shooting of his film Bharat Ane Nenu under Koritala Siva where he plays the role of a Chief Minister. Kiara Advani plays the lead in the film which is slated to be releases in the first half of 2018.
