The actress was supposed to earlier work with Ravi Teja in his film Touch Chesi Choodu, directed by Vikram Sirikonda but later the things did not materialize and she walked out of the project. Now she is going to act in Ravi Teja’s film.
Initially, the director was supposed to do the film with Power Star Pawan Kalyan, but he said no as he is focusing in Politics. So Santhos Srinivas contacted Touch Chesi Chudu star Ravi Teja to play the lead role. Also, while Catherine Tresa was approached for the female lead but at the last minute, the makers brought Lavanya Tripathi on the board. The sources close to the film unit say that the director was looking for an actress who had not worked with Mass Maharaja earlier, and so, roped in Lavanya Tripathi.
On the otherside, currently Ravi Teja is busy in his ongoing project in the direction of Kalyan Krishna and the first look poster will be out on 18th March on the occasion of Ugadi.
