Mohan Babu’s Gayatri features Manchu Vishnu and Shriya Saran in crucial roles. After seeing their chemistry in the trailer, many felt that the pairing is out of sync as Shriya looks little aged beside Vishnu. But, the team felt that only Shriya could do justice for the crucial role.
Reportedly, Shriya was not the first choice for the role. The makers have approached Bollywood actors Kajol and Madhuri Dixit for the character. However, they turned down the offer.
This is when Manchu Vishnu’s wife suggested Shriya’s name for the role. Left with no option, the makers of Gayatri have roped in Shriya. It remains to be if Shriya justified the role with her performance.
