Initially Rakul Preet Singh was considered to play the female lead in the film. But the call sheets clash with NTR-Sukumar film and Brahmotsavam made the lass back out of Mahesh's film.
The latest reports suggest that Samantha has signed the dotted and Pranitha Subash too has been roped to play another lead. Samantha too, tweeted that there are exciting announcements to be made.
However, the actress has stuck to her sentiment of not revealing the project details till she joins the sets.
Apparently, the film will be shot in a lesser duration and Mahesh Babu has said to have already allotted 90 days of call sheets for the film. The shooting for Brahmotsavam will start in mid july and end in December to release the film in Pongal season, a source informed.
Looks like exciting things are ahead for Mahesh Babu fans since their matinee idol on a working spree.
