After the grand launch event that took place for Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya’s upcoming comic entertainer Venky Mama, cameras failed to roll. While Naga Chaitanya was busy finishing his portions for Majili, Venkatesh was swimming in the success of his recent release F2. However, the makers had a big problem to sort as Rakul Preet decided to exit the project citing her other commitments in the Tamil and the Hindi industries.
The makers then immediately pinged Nabha Natesh, trying to bring her onboard. According to sources, director Bobby had already conducted a look test and had briefed the actress about her role in the film. But Raashi Khanna, who had been in talks with the team a while ago, intervened by pushing her officials to bag the project. Ultimately, after a long discussion, the makers finalised Raashi as the female lead opposite Naga Chaitanya for the film, in place of Rakul Preet.
With all the confusions sorted out, the team is set to start the shoot for the film from Sunday onwards. Venkatesh and Chay will be joining the first schedule, which will take place in Hyderabad. With a straight shoot plan that will go on for close to a month, director Bobby plans to complete a majority of the talkie portions at the earliest.
