It was rumored that Simran has been reportedly approached by the team. However, in an exclusive interaction with JFW, Simran recently dismissed the rumor saying that nobody has spoken to her about the film. “I really don’t know from where these rumors start, no one has spoken to me about Chandramuki 2.” confirmed the actress.
Now Raghava Lawrence took to his Facebook page to clear the air about the movie’s lead, “Chandramukhi 2: Hi to my media friends, Many rumours about Chandramukhi 2 Female lead is being spread that Jyothika madam, Simran madam or Kiara Advani might be seen in the lead role but it’s all just fake news. The script work is going on, once the covid situation settles and The production confirms the female lead, We will officially announce it” He wrote.
It is a known fact that Simran was the first to be approached to play the lead in ‘Chandramukhi’ when the film was first released almost fifteen years back. It is said that she also shot a few scenes. It was a few months after her wedding to Deepak Bagga and she discovered that she was pregnant and could not continue the film. However the director/actor made it clear that no one has been approached yet to play the female lead.
Sun Pictures is reportedly bankrolling the project and the film will go on floors as soon as the pandemic situation is contained.
