The next Karthi starrer, Biriyani is ready to be cooked. The film’s unit did a test shoot with Shakti Saravanan, one of Venkat Prabhu’s favourite cameramen and the results look good, according to him.

The film’s director was on the lookout for a heroine to replace Richa who walked out of the film, when she heard that Hansika is doing the main lead opposite Karthi.

Remember that even Hansika was roped in after a long wait, as Venkat wanted a Tamil speaking heroine and was keen on Nayanthara or a leading Bollywood heroine.

But looks like now, all the waiting is over for Karthi, as a sizzling UK beauty, Mandy Takhar has been roped in for the role. The UK born actor has done a few Punjabi films and was noted for her hot bikini act in the Hindi flick Bamboo in which she did a hot number called Pinky Punjabi.

With so much oomph to her credit, it looks like the song to be picturised on her and Karthi will set the temperatures soaring!
