After roping in the National Crush of India Rashmika Mandanna in Animal alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Sandeep Reddy Vanga is again considering the Pushpa actress.
The Kabir Singh director wants the the South sensation to be the leading lady for his upcoming film titled ‘Spirit’ opposite superstar Prabhas. However, Rashmika Mandanna is not alone in the race.
As per latest media reports, it’s Kiara Advani who is also in the race to grab the role.
According to the latest media reports, following the announcement of Spirit starring Baahubali star Prabhas, the film is still in the pre-production phase and the makers have yet to decide who will be the lead actress of the film.
The makers are said to be struggling to decide between Kiara and Rashmika. Once the main actress is chosen, ‘Spirit’ is expected to go on the floors.
A source close to the development told India Today, “The makers are looking to cast either Kiara or Rashmika in the lead role. Post the lead is finalised, the film is expected to go on floors.”
Sandeep Reddy Vanga knows the potential of Rashmika Mandanna and Kiara Advani having worked with them on several projects. The Pushpa actress is currently filming alongside Ranbir Kapoor with filmmaker for Animal.
On the other hand, Kiara has worked with Sandeep Reddy Vanga in Kabir Singh opposite Shahid Kapoor. Although the film performed well at the box office, it sparked a big controversy and was even called a misogynistic film. Prabhas was last seen in Radhe Shyam, which failed miserably at the box office.
So, we will have to wait to see who wins the race to become Prabhas’ leading lady in Spirit.
