Few days ago, it was revealed that pretty lass Rakul Preet had walked out of Venky Mama, the upcoming film starring Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya. The actress was supposed to play the latter’s pair in the comic entertainer directed by Bobby, but ultimately exited the camp, making way for Raashi Khanna who grabbed the opportunity.
And now, Tollywood birdies have come up saying that Rakul Preet has boarded Nagarjuna’s next film, which will be directed by Rahul Ravindran of Chi La Sow fame. Rakul will be playing Nagarjuna’s romantic interest in the film, which will be majorly shot overseas. According to sources, it was Rahul who suggested her name to the makers, who decided to bring her on board immediately. The director and the actress have been close friends for a long time in the industry, being appreciative of each other’s work. This will Rakul Preet’s first film with Nagarjuna, in her career that spans over ten years.
Though the film will be titled Manmadhudhu 2, it is not a sequel to the 2002 hit, and is a fresh story under the same franchise name. The makers plan to kick start the shoot by next month in Portugal. Rahul and his core team had recently been in the country to finalize the locations for the first schedule.
