Koratala Siva made it clear that Kajal Aggarwal is not part of the film as he said, “After completing the first schedule, I watched the rush and was not convinced. I discussed the same with Megastar garu and he asked me to take the final call. I explained the same to Kajal and she responded with a smile. Kajal’s role is completely chopped off from Acharya. Pooja Hegde plays Neelambari, the love interest of Ram Charan and there is no leading lady for Chiranjeevi garu in Acharya.”
In addition to this, the trailer of Acharya also has no sign of Kajal Aggarwal in it. Even at the trailer launch that was conducted recently, none of the actors mentioned Kajal’s name in their speeches. On the work front, Kajal was last seen in Hey Sinamika. She is awaiting the release of three films, Karungaapiyam, Ghosty and Uma.
