Hansika Motwani, who has hands full of projects, has turned down the movie starring Manchu Manoj. As the actress is busy with various projects, she could not allot dates for the Telugu flick. Now, she has been replaced by Rakul Preet Singh.
Confirming the news, director Nageshwar Reddy said that Hansika Motwani was the first choice as they believe that her chemistry would work well with Manchu Manoj. But she opted out due to her other commitments. Hence, they have signed Rakul Preet Singh for the untitled project.
"We had initially roped her in as she makes a great on-screen pair with Manoj. But due to her packed schedule with other films, we finally had to replace her with Rakul. It was a unanimous decision by Manoj and I," director Nageshwar Reddy told IANS.
Rakul Preet Singh, who has tasted success with her recent Telugu movie Venkatadri Express, is gearing up for the release of forthcoming movie Autonagar Surya.
Hansika Motwani is currently busy with multiple projects. Indeed, she is said to be one of the busiest actresses in southern film industry. Her forthcoming movies are Maan Karate, Uyire Uyire and Telugu film Power.
