Casting Bollywood actresses has become a trend for high profile Telugu productions. Shraddha Kapoor was roped in for Prabhas’s “Saaho”.
Ali Bhatt and Deepika Padukone are chosen for pan-Indian projects – SS Rajamouli’s “RRR” and “Prabhas21” respectively.
But the recent controversies in Bollywood are giving sleepless nights to SS Rajamouli and Vyjyanthi Movies.
Ali Bhatt’s name has been damaged by social media trolls and media channels after the nepotism issue became a national topic. Alia Bhatt’s “Sadak 2” trailer had garnered dubious distinction of most disliked trailer ever.
Alia Bhatt’s name has now become a burden rather than an assent to the “RRR” project. She is expected to join the sets of this movie next month. She has been cast opposite Ram Charan in this film.
Now, the raging controversy over Deepika Padukone in drugs chat is going to be a headache for producer Ashwini Dutt who has roped her in for #Prabhas21 by paying whopping Rs 20+ crore remuneration. Deepika Padukone is playing a queen’s role in this sci-fi thriller.
Media channels have reported that WhatsApp chats of her manager Karishma revealed that Deepika asking her whether she does have any “maal” (drugs)?
