After a lot of dilly dallying, finally actress Lavanya Tripathi has been confirmed as heroine opposite Nagarjuna Akkineni in his upcoming film. Lavanya will be seen as second fiddle to Nag as he is also going to romance Ramya Krishna. Featuring Nagarjuna in dual roles the film will be directed by newcomer Kalyan.
Although the makers have considered Sonal Chauhan who paired up with Balakrishna in blockbuster Legend, later they have a change of mind and roped in Lavanya Tripathi as she is well-known face among youth. Also Lavanya’s cameo in Manam helped her in bagging the role opposite Nag in the film. The shooting of the film is expected to begin very soon.
Meanwhile, rumours are rife that Lavanya has been replaced with Drushyam girl Kruthika in Dil Raju’s forthcoming production venture Kerintha. So, Lavanya is under pressure to deliver a success with Nag’s film.
