A few weeks ago, reports were rife that the makers of Vijay’s upcoming flick with director Lokesh Kanagaraj had approached Rashmika Mandanna to play one of the leads in the film. Though there is no official confirmation yet, a source close to the team has revealed us that the actress denied the offer due to date issues.
We also hear that her Bollywood debut will be the remake of hit Telugu film, Jersey, which had Nani playing the role of a professional cricketer.
While Shahid Kapoor will reprise Nani’s role, Rashmika Mandanna will be seen as his wife — a role played by Shraddha Srinath in the original. The remake is said to be produced by Jersey’s original maker Dil Raju. “The film will go on floors in the first week of November and the script has been tweaked a little to suit the Hindi sensibilities.” In one of the earlier interviews, Rashmika had said that it is her dream to share screen space with Vijay. However, it looks like she has much bigger dreams now.
