Actor Hansika Motwani has rubbished rumours that she has been cast in the upcoming Telugu romantic-comedy, Hello Brother, a remake of the eponymous movie that was made in Telugu and also in Hindi.
In fact, Hansika says she wasn’t even approached for the film. “So, (I) just want (to) clear the air that I’m not doing ‘Hello Brother’ in Telugu (and) nor was I approached! Please put a full stop to the rumours,” Hansika posted on her Twitter page.
The new Hello Brother features Naga Chaitanya and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead, and is expected to go on floors soon. However, shooting for the film hasn’t begun yet. Srinivasa Reddy was handed over the responsibility of wielding the megaphone for the remake, which originally featured Nagarjuna in the lead. The original Telugu movie released in 1994 and its Hindi version released in 1999.
Meanwhile, Hansika has her hands full with Tamil projects. She recently signed the untitled Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster Ishq, and the Tamil romantic-comedy, Maan Karate. In Telugu, Hansika is shooting for an untitled multi-starrer. She is awaiting the release of her Tamil films, Biriyani and Vaalu.
