Contrary to reports Kiara Advani will not be cast opposite Mahesh Babu in his next project entitled Sarkaaru Vaari Paata which will be directed by Parashuram who last directed Vijay Deverakonda in Geetha Govindham.
The leading being finalized opposite Mahesh Babu in this project is Keerthy Suresh,the National award winning actress from Mahanathi who has been riding high since last year, so high that she opted out of her Hindi debut film Amit Sharma’s Maidaan opposite Ajay Devgan.
Says a source, “Mahesh Babu’s next fim doesn’t require just a pretty face opposite him. Hence names like Pooja Hegde and Kiara Advani are out. Keerthy with her proven talent is being finalized for Sarkaaru Vaari Paata . This film needs a performer, not a glamour prop.”
