If rumours were to be believed, Shruti Haasan has just bagged her next film produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The actress has apparently replaced Tamannaah Bhatia, who was initially said to star opposite Akshay Kumar in the film.
A source says, “The film focuses on the fight against corruption and will mark South director Krish’s (Gamyam, 2008 and Vedam, 2010) Bollywood debut. While Shabina Khan has already acquired the official rights of the film, speculations about the leading lady continued till Tamannaah’s name was announced.”
The film is a Bollywood remake of South hit Ramanna (2002). “The whole idea was to have a fresh pairing and Akshay has never worked with Shruti before.” Bhansali, Khan and Shruti remained unavailable for comment.
