Last seen in Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s Namaste England (2018), Parineeti Chopra has reportedly been approached to play the female lead in filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli’s next directorial RRR. To be made in Telugu, the high-profile film stars N. T. Rama Rao Jr. and Ram Charan in prominent roles.
If fresh reports are to be believed, Parineeti has already given her nod to the big-ticket project. But before agreeing to come onboard, the actress is rumoured to have demanded a fat cheque as her remuneration.
According to reports, Parineeti will play one of the three female leads in the movie. After finalizing her, S.S. Rajamouli will soon sign two more heroines for the much-anticipated project as he does not want any delay in the shoot.
Set in the 1920s, RRR is being touted as one of the costliest Telugu films of India. If buzz is anything to go by, the makers are producing the action entertainer at an astronomical budget of ₹ 300 crores. This is just the production cost and several cores will be spent later on the marketing and promotion of the film.
Talking about Parineeti’s Bollywood projects, she will shortly be seen in Dharma Productions’ Kesari opposite Akshay Kumar. Her next release will be the much-delayed Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar with Arjun Kapoor, followed by Ekta Kapoor’s Jabariya Jodi, co-starring Sidharth Malhotra.
