Media reports were abuzz that Rana Daggubati would be cast in director Ravi Babu’s Avunu sequel Avunu 2. Contrary to it, Avunu 2 now has Harshavardhan Rane which will roll on to shooting from August 1.
When contacted a source close to the unit, he clarified, “Harshavardhan Rane has been the first and final choice for Avunu 2 considering that he has done well in Avunu. Someone might have misunderstood as Rana for Rane that led to speculations that Rana is part of thriller.” Poorna will also be part of Avunu 2, added the source. Avunu, a thriller, made on shoe-string budget did exceptionally well at the BO. Makers are now hoping the same for its sequel.
