The role of Gona Ganna Reddy in director Gunasekhar's movie
Rudhramadevi has created a lot of
curiosity among the film goers. Earlier, the names of Superstar
Babu and Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja were considered for the character.
The latest buzz is, young tiger Junior NTR will reprise the role in the
Anushka Shetty starrer period
It was reported earlier that Gunasekhar had approached Mahesh
Babu, who had given his consent to play Gona Ganna Reddy in his
much-talked about period drama Rudhramadevi. He was to
allot 20 days for the project, but he could not do it due to date
issues. After he opted out of the film, the director reportedly
tried to rope Ravi Teja. However, things did not fall in
Now, a rumour is fast spreading that Gunasekhar wants to cast
Junior NTR for this important role in Rudhramadevi. But it
is not known whether the young tiger, who has earlier starred as
child artiste in Gunasekhar's Bala Ramayanam in 1997, has given his
consent for the project or not. However, it is not clear who will
play the role in the movie.
Rudhramadevi is a historical 3D film made on a budget
of around Rs 50 crore. Anushka Shetty is playing lead role -
Rudrama Devi, Queen of the Kakatiya dynasty, while Rana Daggubati
appears as Chalukya Veerabhadra. Prakash Raj and Krishnam Raju are
playing important roles in it.
