Rakul Preet Singh is step into the shoes of legendary actress Sridevi for NTR biopic.
Earlier reports suggested that Sonakshi Sinha or Shraddha Kapoor would be playing Sridevi but now the makers have cleared the air saying that Rakul was their one and only choice from the beginning itself.
Producer Vishnu Induri told, “We haven’t approached Sonakshi, Kangana or Shraddha. Rakul Preet is our only choice as she’s popular in the South, especially in Telugu films. We have shot almost 30 per cent of the movie. Vidya [Balan, who plays NTR’s wife] has already shot for six days. We are working on Rakul’s dates for now.”
