Veteran director Mani Ratnam has been facing a lot of issues while casting for his upcoming film. Earlier selected actors Dulquer Salmaan and Keerthi Suresh have opted out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
After roping Nani in the place of Dulquer, now it is heard that Mani Ratnam has roped in Bollywood actress Saiyami Kher to replace Keerthi Suresh. Saiyami has already acted in Telugu film ‘Rey’ opposite Mega hero Sai Dharam Tej, which is his first film in Telugu.
She is currently busy with the shooting of Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra’s ‘Mirziya’. Reportedly, Mani Ratnam has already conducted a photo session with Saiyami and the formal announcement is pending.
This romantic drama already has Karthi and Nithya Menon on board, apart from Nani. Shooting will start in December month.
