Malayali girls Nayantara and Priyamani are in the race for
Venkatesh starrer next film, which is a remake of Malayalam
blockbuster Bodyguard. It has been revealed that the
makers of the film are considering them to play Venkatesh's leading
lady in the film.

be part of the project, as Nayantara has decided to bid goodbye to
