Kiara Advani was the first choice. Then they knocked on the doors of Janhvi Kapoor. Disha Patani and Shraddha Kapoor were also asked. None of them have evinced interest. We are talking about Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas’s maiden Hindi film. The makers of this film have approached all the above said big names to be the heroine of this project.
Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas’s Telugu movies dubbed into Hindi had done an impressive business in the rural North Indian market. They have also garnered hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. To tap this market further, he is debuting in Bollywood with the Hindi remake of ‘Chatrapathi’. Senior Telugu director VV Vinayak, who launched Bellamkonda Srinivas as a hero in Telugu with ‘Alludu Srinu’, will handle this project as a director.
Bellamkonda Srinivas has already begun working on his physique to portray the role. But the makers are finding it hard to convince the top starlets of Bollywood to act opposite Srinivas.
If we look at Bellamkonda Srinivas’s Telugu career, he prefers to pair up with popular heroines. His father Suresh had paid big money to Samantha to act as a heroine in his debut film. Kajal Aggarwal and Tamannaah had also played opposite him. The same formula is being repeated.

The latest is that the makers are now trying hard to convince Ananya Panday to sign the film. She has been offered a tempting remuneration. Ananya Panday is currently acting opposite Vijay Deverakonda in Puri Jagannadh’s ‘Liger’. Will she agree to be part of Bellamkonda’s film?
