Now, the grapevine is abuzz that popular South Indian actress Ileana D'Cruz is signed for the heroine's role in the film.
Earlier, it was rumoured that actress Amala Paul was being considered for the female lead in the Hindi version of Vettai. But now, sources claim that Ileana has emerged as one of the frontrunners. The industry insiders say that a few days ago, the Nanban heroine has been approached for the role and she has also expressed her interest to work with Shahid Kapoor.
Currently, Ileana D'Cruz is busy shooting with Ravi Teja for director Puri Jagannadh's upcoming Telugu film in Bangkok. She will be back in India in the third week of April.
