Debutant Nikitha Patel, a model from Mumbai, has been reportedly finalized as the main heroine opposite the unbeatable Pawan Kalyan in his upcoming movie Puli, being directed by S.J. Suryah. It has been learnt that the Pawan Kalyan is playing dual roles in the movie. While one role is that of a powerful police officer, the other one is a common man.
Some sources said the subject of the film will have a political touch and the political satires in dialogues will have their impact on the forthcoming elections. The second schedule of the film has already started on September 6 and shooting is progressing at a brisk pace.
Earlier, the shooting was temporally halted due to the announcement of Pawan's brother's new party, 'Praja Rajyam'. Pawan Kalyan was busy helping his brother make arrangements for the public meet and other work.
Produced by Singanamala Ramesh under the banner of Sri Kanaka Ratna Movies, the film will also have Parvathi Melton as the second heroine. A.R. Rahman is composing the music; Bollywood cinematographer Binod Pradhan is working for this prestigious film. The audio is likely to be released in November. The producer is making all efforts to complete the film as early as possible.
