Rakul Preet has reportedly been approached to play Sridevi in NTR biopic.

NTR biopic starring Nandamuri Balakrishna has been in the news for casting Vidya Balan as Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s first wife Basavatarakama. Following this, speculations are rife that the film will see Rakul Preet play the role of Sridevi in the film. NTR and Sridevi acted in as many as 14 movies including hits such as Vetagaadu, Bobbili Puli, Justice Chowdhary and Kondaveeti Simham.

According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, a source close to the project said, “Rakul was approached for the role and the actress was elated to be part of the project. However, the date clash could be a problem. But things are still in the nascent stage and it’s premature to comment.”

Rakul Preet is busy with multiple projects right now. One is NGK directed by Selvaraghavan and starring Suriya in the lead role. This film is expected to release for Diwali 2018 and the shoot is currently in progress. The actor is also a part of Karthi’s film Dev. The two stars had previously worked in the critically and commercially hit Theeran Adhigaram Ondru. She is also a part of a Bollywood project opposite Ajay Devgn.

Speaking about this project to IANS, the actor had said, “We are 50 per cent through the film, so the audience will be able to see the film really soon and then I have bunch of south Indian films. I am working on three Tamil films and one Telugu film.”
