Richa Gangopadhyay, who was reportedly playing the second female
lead role in Bodyguard remake, is not a part of the
project. Producer Bellamkonda Suresh has cleared the speculations
by saying that he has not signed her for the film.
Bellamkonda Suresh has said that the makers of the film never
thought about casting Richa Gangopadhyay in Bodyguard
remake. He added that they are planning to rope in a top actress to
play the second lead role, which was played by Mithra Kurian in
both Malayalam and Tamil versions.
Earlier, a few websites and a newspaper carried a story about
Richa Gangopadhyay's inclusion to the cast. It also claimed that
Venkatesh suggested her name, as he worked with her in
Nagavalli. However, Trisha Krishnan, Prakash Raj,
Brahmanandam, Subbaraju, Ali, Venu Madhav Tanikella Bharani and
others are in the cast.
