Director Muralidhar, who has roped in Sasural Simar Ka‘s Avika Gor in his upcoming yet-untitled romantic-comedy, says he was convinced to cast her as she has an innocence suitable for love stories
“When I saw her debut film, I thought she was made to play an innocent character. But it was not until I met her that I realised that she has the innocence most suitable for romantic roles. This was one of the strong reasons why I cast her in my film,” said Muralidhar.
Avika, known for Hindi television soaps, made her cinematic debut with Telugu blockbuster Uyyala Jampala. “We are on the lookout for a few more newcomers. As soon as we finalise them, we’ll start shooting,” he said.
Avika is currently shooting for Telugu film Lakshmi Raave Maa Intiki, which features Naga Shaurya in the lead.
