Actress Rakul Preet Singh is said to have been approached to play the leading role in film-maker Mysskin's Tamil thriller Thupparivaalan, which stars Vishal Krishna in the lead.
"Rakul has been approached. However, she is not yet finalised. It's going to take a few more weeks before the makers will finalise on the heroine," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Tipped to be an investigative thriller, the film marks the first time collaboration of Mysskin and Vishal.
Rakul, whose last Tamil film was 2014 romantic-drama Yennamo Yedho, has been extremely busy in Telugu in the last couple of years. She currently awaits the release of Telugu actioner Sarrainodu.
Over the years, Rakul Preet has gone on to become an important actress in the Telugu film industry. Hence, if the team of Thupparivaalan can get her on board, there are every chance of improving the film's box office prospects in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.
The 25-year-old actress began her career in modelling at the age of 18 while she was still in college. After making her acting debut with a Kannada movie, she made her Tamil debut through Thadaiyara Thaakka and then went on to feature in Puthagam, before making her Tamil comeback with Yennamo Yedho.
Thupparivaalan has aroused the interest of many movie enthusiasts as Mysskin, with his unique film-making style, is expected to dish out an edge of the seat thriller.
Add to that Vishal's reputation as an action hero and the film is sure to have some high octane action sequences, that might entertain one and all.
Now, all that remains to be seen is if Rakul can allocate dates to this project amid her tight schedule in Tollywood.
