Nani has bagged yet another big movie to his kitty. The actor, who
is working with SS Rajamouli's Eega, has been roped in for
Gautham Menon's forthcoming film Nithya.
Sources say that Gautham Menon, who was thinking to cast Jeeva
for the Telugu version after Ram walked out of the project, has
changed his mind and has decided to replace the Kandireega
actor with Nani. It is noted that the Ashta Chemma had
worked in the filmmaker's production in Sega, which was a dubbed
version of Tamil film Veppam.
As the director had seen Nani's work in Sega, he
decided to cast him, says a source. The movie is simultaneously
being shot in Tamil, which is titled as Neethaane En
Ponvasantham, and in Hindi with Aditya Roy Kapoor in the lead.
Actress Samantha is playing the female lead role in all three
versions of the forthcoming multilingual film.
