Last seen in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Kiara Advani is most likely to make her Telugu debut opposite stylish star Allu Arjun, in his next yet-untitled project with writer-director Vakkantham Vamsi. Having already worked with most of the leading southern heroines, the makers decided they’d cast a new face opposite Arjun, and hence, have zeroed in on Kiara. Although nothing has been finalised yet, talks have been initiated with the young actor. A source informed HT that in a few weeks the lead cast should be finalised.
Vamsi, according to sources, had originally planned to make this film with Jr NTR, and it was pitched to him while working on Temper. Vamsi had penned the story of Temper, and impressed with his work, NTR asked him to work on a fresh script. Unfortunately, the duo never got to work together and after months of waiting, Vamsi pitched the same story to Arjun, and he instantly liked it and even agreed to do it.
Even though the title is not locked, we hear that Naa Peru Surya is one of the options under consideration. The project will be bankrolled by Sridhar Lagadapati under Ramalakshmi Cine Creations banner.
