Director Chandoo Mondeti has rubbished rumors that Nithya Menen has been roped in as one of the leading ladies in Telugu romantic-drama Majnu, a remake of Malayalam blockbuster Premam.
"Not sure where these rumors come from. We haven't even approached Nithya for the role," said Mondeti.
Starring Naga Chaitanya, Majnu will feature Shruti Haasan and Anupama Parameswaran in the lead roles.
Apparently, the other consideration is reportedly Rakul Preet Singh for an another female lead in the films. To be produced by S. Radha Krishna, the film is set to go on the floors soon.
Premam, which emerged as one of the highest grossing Malayalam films ever, is the coming of age tale of its protagonist at different stages of his life.
Majnu is expected to do wonder for Naga Chaitanya like Ye Maaya Chesave and 100% Love did for the actor, since it is a genre of his potential.
