With Raashi Khanna confirmed to replace Rakul Preet Singh, the makers will finally start shooting on Venky Mama this weekend.
Actress Rakul Preet Singh is no longer part of Venky Mama. The makers have roped in Raashi Khanna instead. It has been reported that Nabha Natesh was to replace Rakul, but things took another turn overnight.
The filmmakers even did a look test at a private studio on Wednesday morning. They seemed quite satisfied with Nabha Natesh to take up the role and almost finalised the deal. In the background, however, Raashi Khanna had been putting pressure on her manager to get this project,” claims a source.
At about midnight, after a long discussion, the makers finally confirmed Raashi Khanna to replace Rakul. Suresh Babu is going to be producing the film along with People Media Factory, and it seems as though the two partners had not come to a clear conclusion in this regard, which caused the confusion. But the matter has been resolved now, and they’re expected to start shooting for the film on the 24th of this month.
