As Sai Pallavi has rejected Mahesh Babu, Anil Ravipudi is in the hunt of another top actress to play the female lead. Earlier it was heard that the makers are trying to rope Kannada beauty Rashmika Mandanna but now the sources say that the makers are trying to contact Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha to romance with Mahesh Babu.
Sonakshi Sinha could get a chance in Telugu after her tremendous weight loss and also as her career in Hindi Film Industry is not flourishing. Anil Ravipudi is currently busy writing the script. Mahesh Babu will listen to the script and later he will take the final call about the shoot. The regular shoot is expected to commence in April. On the other side, Sonakshi Sinha has few big-budget projects in her kitty. She will be next seen in Kalank and Dabangg3.
