SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus period film RRR, set in the backdrop of Independence era, has been grabbing the eyeballs of media and audience ever since it’s announcement. The makers have pulled off a casting coup of sorts by signing up NTR, Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in the lead roles. Unfortunately, foreign actress Daisy Edgar Jones has backed out from the project citing personal reasons. The hunt for a new actress to replace her is currently on.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that Rajamouli has roped in highly talented actress Nitya Menon for a significant role in this project. Sources revealed that Nitya Menon will be seen as a village belle in this period film and she will be paired up with NTR who is playing Komaram Bheem. It is also clarified that she has not replaced Daisy Edgar Jones and her character is a completely different one.
This is going to be the second time, Nitya Menon is paired opposite NTR after Janata Garage.
