Our readers are aware that Rakul Preet Singh is replaced by Rashi Khanna in Victory Venkatesh and Yuva Samrat Naga Chaitanya’s Venky Mama. We are told that it is the choice of Rakul herself. Besides Venky Mama, Rakul was also offered a role in Nagarjuna’s Manmadhudu-2. Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya, however, found it absurd to have the same heroine besides father and son.
So, they reportedly told Rakul that she can pick only one film out of the two and the actress reportedly picked up Manmadhudu-2. The regular shooting of the film began recently in East Godavari. Scenes on Venkatesh are being canned. Naga Chaitanya will join the team very soon. RX 100 fame Payal Rajput will romance Venkatesh.
