Shruti Haasan who recently appeared opposite Pawan Kalyan in Gabbar Singh was all set to star with the Tollywood Power Star again in his next.
However, with delay in the shoot the actress had to walk out from the project. Following this, she has been replaced by Rakul Preet Singh, who is fast rising to stardom.
It is to be noted that Rakul is a huge admirer of the Power Star and has expressed desire to work with him. “Rakul is the obvious choice right now. It will be a fresh pairing,” sources said.
Never in his career has Pawan Kalyan co-starred with any actress twice (except with ex-wife Renu Desai) and it was set to happen with Shruti Haasan. But the actress has had to pull out.
Rakul is open admirer of Pawan Kalyan and has shown willingness to work on this project. The pairing will be interesting one for the fans as they would share screen for the first time. Rakul is currently working for several projects, namely Dhruva with Ram Charan, Boyapati and Gopichand Malineni.
