After the news that Shruthi Hasan dropped out of Dammu, the producers and the director are said to have roped in Karthika Radha to play the second lead in the film. There is still no news about who will replace Shruthi as the heroine.
Karthika has impressed the film goers with her performance in Rangam and she reportedly has a meaty role in Dammu though she plays the second lead .
The shooting of Dammu will start in the last week of October and scenes connected with NTR Jr will be canned first. The shooting schedule is being reshuffled to suit the changes in the main cast.
