In an exclusive chat with Sify.com, UR Jameel who is directing Hansika’s 50th film ‘Maha’ said: “I actually had another actor in mind but it was Hansika who referred STR’s name. Later, I also found him to be perfect for role. Actually, STR plays Hansika’s pair in the film. Reports on him playing an Islam named Sohaib are totally wrong. We are also not shooting his scenes in Istanbul”.
Jameel also added that STR is not roped in for a special appearance. “STR plays a very crucial role in the film. He will be seen around thirty minutes in the film”, said Jameel. And soon Hansika tweeted: "Since the buzz is crazy and the news is leaked out way before time. Me and #STR are back in #MAHA
As of now, the team is said to have completely nearly 40% of the shoot. Ghibran is composing the music for the film and Srikanth also plays an important role. Once STR returns back from London, he will start shooting for Maha.
