Ram Gopal Varma is currently busy with the pre-production work of his next film with Nagarjuna that will go on floors on November 20. However, it is also believed that in the meantime, the controversial director has also been on the lookout for the cast of his other film Lakshmi’s NTR, a film based on NTR’s life.
According to a source, the director has come close to finalising someone for the lead role. “After going through several options, RGV has found the right person to act as NTR. The person he has found is a complete lookalike of NTR and RGV is now secretly training him at his office,” says the source.
The source also informed us that the NTR lookalike is a newbie in the film world and hails from Hyderabad itself. “Generally, RGV picks up his actors randomly, as he has done for a few films like Vangaveeti, Veerappan and Rakta Charitra. Similarly now he has picked up a new guy for this film,” adds the source.
