It was earlier reported that director Atlee is in talks for Nayanthara to be the leading lady in his next with Shah Rukh Khan. Well, looks like Nayanthara has been finalised for the role if the latest reports are to be believed. It is said that both Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee had been in conversation with the actress for the role and now finally things have worked out.
“Both Atlee and Shah Rukh Khan have been in conversation with Nayanthara for a while now and things have finally fallen in place. The actress has come on board the action thriller and the paperwork too has been done,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla. The report further said that Atlee has plans for a multi-lingual film that will bring talents from across industries together.
The source said, “It’s a proper Pan-India film, and the makers are leaving no stone unturned to get the biggest names from all industries on board the film. It’s an out and out commercial film and everyone is excited to see SRK in this space after a long time.” Atlee’s next is already in pre-production and the location scout, look test, casting and other aspects have already begun.
Talking about Nayanthara’s character the source said, “t’s a well sketched out female lead and that’s something that drew Nayanthara to the film.” Meanwhile, SRK will be seen sporting a bulked-up body, six-pack abs and the team is consistently working towards developing a special attire for SRK based on his character traits.
