Earlier, they had approached Kiara Advani, but the Bharat Ane Nenu actress didn't have dates. After a lot of thought, director Bommarillu Bhaskar and producers from Geetha Arts approached Pooja Hegde. She is yet to sign on the dotted line.
After the success of Maharshi, Pooja Hegde has become one of the most sought after actresses in the industry. Reports suggest that the actress is currently charging 1.5 Cr per film.
