Kannada film producer Soorappa Babu has slammed the reports claiming that he has signed up actress Ramya for his forthcoming movie Prithvi. The producer seemed to be very upset with the reports. Speaking on the occasion of launch of the Puneet Rajkumar starrer movie Prithvi on October 15, he claimed that he never thought of Ramya.
The makers of the movie Prithvi have been searching for suitable face to star alongside Puneet for more than three months. Soorappa claimed that he has never discussed about Ramya. He said, "Neither the director nor the team of Prithvi had any idea of casting Ramya as the heroine of the film or in any other role."
The producer said when his team was discussing the names of several heroines, somehow the confusion got created by the publication of a fabricated news. And things got messed up. Now, Soorappa cleared off the air by saying that Ramya would not be part of his film Prithvi.
However, Parvathi Menon, who has earlier starred alongside Puneet in Milana, has recently been roped in to play the love interest of Puneet in the film Prithvi, which was launched on October 15. The regular shooting of the film will commence from October 20.
