Multi lingual actress Muktha Elsa George, popularly known as Muktha will be Darshan`s heroine in Brindavana.
She has replaced actress Vedhika who was selected for the role earlier. Vedhika opted out of the film and director Maadesh has selected Malayalam actress Muktha. Brindavana is the remake of the Telugu hit Brindavanam starring NTR, Kajol and Samantha.
The film will be launched on Darshan`s birthday which falls on February 16. Muktha will be playing the role played by Samantha in the original, while Karthika Nair will be playing Kajol`s role.
By bagging the leading role in Brindavana Muktha will complete the distinction of acting in films in all the four southern languages.
"I am excited that for the first time I will be playing a modern girl as I have always been showcased as a homely girl in all my films," a delighted Muktha says.
Muktha says she has been receiving a positive feedback from her friends in the Malayalam film industry. "I know my colleagues Bhavana and Bhama are doing well in Kannada films. My friends feel that stepping into the Kannada film industry to act with a star like Darshan is the biggest thing that has happened in my career. Navya Nair also told me that Darshan is a big star", says Muktha.
Muktha started her career as a television serial artist and then switched on to film industry. Her first film was Achanurangatha Veedu released in 2005.
