Kajal Agarwal is set to replace Shruti Hassan in a much awaited film. No, not in Kollywood, but in Tollywood. If sources are to be believed, Shruti Hassan has walked out of ‘Dammu‘, a movie starring top actor Junior NTR in the lead role, due to much delay in its start.
Following this, the makers of the film have decided to sign Kajal Agarwal as the heroine. Since Kajal has already shared screen space with the actor in ‘Brindavanam‘, she is comfortable working with NTR and is eager to share the screen space with him again, sources say.
“Kajal Agarwal is currently shooting for Surya starrer Maatran in Russia and is expected to return India before Dewali. She will sign the NTR starrer immediately after her arrival to the homeland,” sources say, adding: “Shruti really wanted to be part of the project. But she had no other option than walking out.”
Explaining the reason, they add: “Because, Shruti Hassan was told that the shooting of Dammu would start in March this year and would end by November. She planned her other commitments according to that. However, the project got delayed for months and is set to hit the floors only now.”
