Film-maker AR Murugadoss has clarified that Rakul Preet Singh is the sole heroine of his upcoming yet-untitled Telugu-Tamil bilingual directorial with Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu.
According to reports, Nayantara was rumoured to be roped in as the second leading lady in the film.
"Rakul Preet is the only female lead in my film with Mahesh sir," Murugadoss wrote on his official Twitter page on Friday (September 16).
Tipped to be a stylish action-thriller, the film features Mahesh in the role of an intelligence officer.
"It's not a regular cop's role. He plays an intelligence officer and contrary to reports, he won't get to don the khaki. It's going to be a very stylish film and it will portray Mahesh in a very different avatar," a source from the film's unit had said.
The film also stars actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah as the antagonist, apart from RJ Balaji, Dheepa Ramanujam and Priyadarshi Pullikonda in supporting roles.
The movie is being jointly produced by Tagore Madhu and NV Prasad.
