Director N. Omprakash Rao is a worried man nowadays for he is not finding an actress suitable for the role of Shivraj Kumar's mother in AK97. He has approached several actresses like Hema Malini and Rekha but none of them have accepted the role even after being offered one crore for the role.
Now, it seems that finally he has found his actress although she is yet to confirm it. Omprakash has approached Jayapradha and is confident that she will accept the role as it is a nice one with great acting opportunities. Briefing the media, the director said that the film will go on the floors in December. R. Kumaraswami and P. Kishore are the producers and the Rajashekhar-Ramesh team is writing the dialogues.
