Finding perfect heroine for Nandamuri Balakrishna has become a big headache to director Krish. His original choices were Anushka and Nayanathara but both of them are busy with their other commitments and have no dates to cater to this movie.
Since “Gauthamiputra Satakarni” is a prestigious movie for both Balakrishna and Krish, Krish is seeking huge call sheets of a heroine. Hence Nayanathara turned down the offer, say the sources.
Finally the team reportedly found that Shriya would be the ideal choice for the role of Satakarni’s wife in the movie. Balakrishna too is said to have given his nod to this choice. Krish has already spoken to her, the sources say.
Shriya has acted with Balakrishna in “Chenna Keshava Reddy” and this would be her second film with him. Shriya still maintains great physique, so even today she is getting offers to play as heroine even though she has been acting in the movie industry for more than 15 years.
