Earlier this year, the Baahubali director had announced his project with the two actors. The film has been allotted a big budget and will be a family entertainer bankrolled by DVV Danayya.
As for Keerthy, having starred in the Savitri biopic, the young actress has Sarkar with Vijay in the pipeline along with Saamy Square with Vikram. She is also shooting for Sandakozhi 2 with Vishal. She will also be seen in a small cameo in Sivakarthikeyan’s Seema Raja.
Incidentally, Keerthy likely to be roped in for Rajamouli’s film doesn’t come as a surprise as the filmmaker had praised the actress’ performance in Mahanati.
. @KeerthyOfficial’s potrayal of Savitri garu is one of the finest performances I’ve ever seen. It is not just imitating. She brought the legendry actress back to life. @dulQuer is absolutely fantastic. I am his fan now.
