Although there were reports that Anushka has signed megastar Chiranajeevi's 150th film, sources close to the production team say no heroine has been finalized so far.
Nayanathara was the first choice for this film but she has not allotted dates to the movie as she is quite busy with her Tamil movies as well as Venkatesh's "Babu Bangaram". As Nayanatara is not giving dates, the team then approached Anushka. But they say neither Anushka nor Nayanatara has signed this film.
On the other hand, Chiranjeevi has not given his agreement to the choice of Anushka. Currently, the team is still working on fine-tuning the script. Even before the changes in the script were included, the film was formally launched last month since auspicious dates in the next three months are not going to available.
The film will commence its regular shoot only once Chiranjeevi is satisfied with all the changes done in the script. So till then the team is not focusing on the choice of heroine, they say.
