The long awaited Mahesh Babu starrer produced by Ramesh and directed by Trivikram Srinivas is getting ready for a regular shoot. Parvathi Melton plays the first female lead. Former actress Namratha, wife of Mahesh has been overseeing the pre-production work of this film.
Recently a photo session was held at Hyderabad. Fashion designer Mahesh Malhotra created the attire to be worn by the hero and heroine. It is said that both Mahesh and Parvathi will have a new look in this film, which is touted as a romantic thriller.
The film has been delayed because the story has to be re-written particularly in view of the poor showing of Athidhi. Now, even the title Varudu is likely to be changed.
The second female lead Tamanna is said to be reluctant to take up her role as she will have far less footage than Parvathi. Moreover she is said to have been offered plum heroine roles in Tamil. The buzz is that Mamatha Mohandas may replace Tamanna in this film.
The shooting of this film is scheduled to start on October 9
