After the release of Endhukante Premanta, Telugu actor
Ram Pothineni is now
busy shooting for his upcoming movie Ongole Gitta, which
is being directed by Bommarillu Bhaksar and produced by BVSN Prasad.
The chocolate hero would romance milky white actress Kriti
Kharbanda in the film.
Earlier, actress Shubha Phutela was roped in to pair with Ram in
the movie Ongole Gitta, but the makers had to remove her
after the first schedule in Guntur due to medical reasons. Later,
they signed South African model Nikhita Rhea, who came on board and
walked out of this romantic drama. The reason is not clear as to
why she was dropped from this project.
The latest reports suggest that actress Kriti Kharbanda has been
roped in to play female lead alongside Ram in Ongole
Gitta. In a statement to an English daily, producer BVSN
Prasad himself has confirmed the news about casting Kriti Kharbanda
for the film. According to him, the next schedule of the movie will
start soon in Tanuku.
Initially, Bhaskar had approached Tamil actor Karthi for
the role of the hero. After he rejected, the director tried to rope
in Allu Arjun. But finally, it was Ram Pothineni, who agreed to
play the role. The film's story is set in the backdrop of Guntur
market yard. Venkatesh is cranking the camera, while GV Prakash
Kumar composes music for the movie.
