Anushka Shetty ditches producer Dil Raju
The sultry south actor Anushka Shetty is ditching her commitments in Tollywood to honour the ones in Kollywood. The actor has now backed out of Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu
Producer Dil Raju was looking for a heroine to play the female lead opposite Victory Venkatesh in one of the biggest multi-starrers of recent Tollywood history, Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. The film, which also stars Mahesh Babu and Samantha, was stuck at the pre-production stage as no heroine was ready to pick up the role of Mahesh’s sister in law.After being turned down by leading actors including Trisha, Nayanthara, Sneha, Bhoomika and even Madhuri Dixit it was Anushka who stepped up for the role. According to the reports the actor made a verbal agreement with Dil Raju about playing opposite Venkatesh. However, Anushka had not signed the dotted line as she is extremely busy in Tamil cinema. Now, the latest reports suggest that Anushka is unable to give dates to Raju due to her busy schedules and this has further delayed the shoot of Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu . The producer is now back to square one, having to search for a new heroine, yet again. All the best with that Raju!
