After Anupama Parameshwaran’s exit from Sukumar-Ram Charan project, the slot for the lead heroine seems have been left vacant. Various names have been suggested like -Keerthi Suresh, Amala Paul, Kajal Aggarwal, Rashi Khanna and now Samantha.

Ram Charan is apparently not keen to repeat his pairing with reigning Tollywood queen Rakul Preet Singh after their two consecutive films – Bruce Lee and Dhruva. Kajal just completed a film with father Chiranjeevi so there is some hesitance there.

So enter Samantha who has never done a movie with Ram Charan. Speculations say that talks are on and official announcement will be made soon.
