But industry sources claim that producer Venkatesh and Upendra wanted to create a big hype for the movie Super. That's why thay were desperate to rope in a Bollywood actress for the film. Earlier, they were in talks with Aishwarya Bachchan and she had given her consent, but she refused to sign the film at the last moment due to date clash. They had even tried Deepika Padukone, but could not rope in her too.
Later, they had contacted Kareena. She was very much interested in the project but she was busy with the movie 3 Idiots at the moment and could not speak to the producer. So the helpless filmmakers had to choose Nayantara for the role. Raockline Venkatesh had even done a photo-shoot spending Rs. 25 lakhs and held grand gala function for the muhurhta of the movie Super.
However, Kareean Kapoor herself called the producer over the phone in the second week of the March and gave her consent to act with Upendra. She was all excited to star alongside Upendra, whom she describes as a dream-chaser.
