Earlier it was heard that Sukumar is planning to bring Katrina Kaif on the board to play the female lead in his upcoming directorial venture in which Superstar Mahesh Babu will play the lead role.
Katrina Kaif has also walked out of Varun Dhawan starrer ABCD 3, as she is already busy in the shooting of Salman Khan starrer Bharat.
Katrina Kaif also talked about her recently released movie Zero in which Bollywood Badshah Shahrukh Khan played the lead role. She said, “What made me happy was that I pulled off the character exactly the way Aanand L Rai and Himanshu Sharma had envisioned it. I lived with the role for almost two-and-a-half years, since the time they conceptualized the movie and approached me for it.”
On the otherside, currently Mahesh Babu is busy in his upcoming movie Maharshi, which is progressing at the brisk pace in the direction of Vamsi Paidipally of Oopiri fame. Pooja Hegde is playing the female lead. Recently the makers have wrapped up the Pollachi schedule.
After wrapping up the shoot of Maharshi, Mahesh Babu will join the sets of Sukumar’s film, which will be bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers.
Katrina Kaif made her Telugu debut with Malliswari in which she shared the screen space with Venkatesh Daggubati. The movie was released in 2004. Later she was seen in Allari Pidugu. It looks like it will be a longer wait to see if Katrina Kaif will ever return to Telugu filmdom.
