Naga Chaitanya was initially chosen for the role of hero in the film Gauaurvam, while Sarath Kumar's daughter Varalaxmi was to play his love interest. But Varalaxmi's name was reportedly dropped from Radha Mohan’s wish list after Naga Chaitanya walked out of project over some reason.
Later, names of Kannada heroines like Nidhi Subbaiah and Aindrita Ray were considered for the female lead, but their names were dropped from the list after they did not suit the image of Sirish. The names of Nithya Menen and Priya Anand were also doing rounds in air for some time.
Gauravam will be Sirish's debut movie and heroine will play a key role in the success of the film. So the makers of the movie wants cast an actress, who is popular in both Tamil and Telugu. Actress Amala Paul, who is successful in both industries, is a strong contender for the role. However, one has to wait to know who will ultimately pair with Sirish.
