Director Surender Reddy roped in his Race Gurram heroine Shruti Haasan for his next movie with hero Ram Charan that is to be launched next month.
The film is the remake of Tamil super hit Thani Oruvan and the movie's pre-production work has started once Allu Aravind took over the project from producer Danayya.
Earlier, Shruti Haasan was paired with Ram Charan in Yevadu and the film went on to be a big hit. So now Charan has given his nod to Shruti when Surender Reddy suggested her for the role. The part was originally played by Nayanatara in the Tamil version.
Also, Shruti Haasan was recently seen in Srimanthudu opposite Mahesh Babu as Charuseela and this will be her next big film in Telugu, though she is playing one of the heroines in Naga Chaitanya-starrer Majnu.
Shruti Haasan also recently hiked her remuneration to Rs 1.5 crores and the producers are willing to pay her the amount as she has become the lucky mascot to several heroes in Tollywood.
