Nakshatra, who is the daughter late director D Rajendra Babu, has signed for Sandalwood's forthcoming movie Fair And Lovely. It is said that the actress will be seen in an important role in the movie.
Fair And Lovely has Lovely Star Prem and Shwetha Srivastava in the lead roles. It is directed by Raghuram.
However, the crew has not revealed anything about Nakshatra's role in the movie. Speaking to leading daily, director Raghuram said, "Nakshatra has an important character to play. I had earlier planned to cast a newcomer, but finally decided to approach Nakshatra for the role." Sources said that she is paired opposite Prem in the movie, which is expected to be a triangular love story between Shwetha, Prem and Nakshatra.
It is said that director Raghuram had delayed to approach the actress, as her father died recently. It is reported that Nakshatra has agreed to the offer and heading to Heritage City Mysore for the shooting of the movie.
Nakshatra also has very good family background. She is the daughter of South actress Sumithra, and younger sister of Uma Maheshwari, who was seen in the movies like Uppi Dada MBBS and Kalarali Hoovagi. She also has Kuchiku Kuchiku, Namma Kalyani, and Tamil movie Varusunadu in her kitty.
