Actress Avika Gor had started off her Tollywood career with a couple of hit flicks like Uyyala Jampala and Cinema Choopistha Maava. However, her interest in pursuing a screenplay course from the New York Film Academy had kept her away from Tollywood.

Now, we hear the actress is all geared to stage a comeback to Telugu cinema.

Avika, who was last seen in Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada, has apparently been roped in as the leading lady in the third of the horror franchise, Raju Gari Gadhi 3, directed by Omkar. Avika will replace Tamannaah Bhatia who was the original choice for the film. Tamannaah had reportedly backed  out because of the eleventh hour changes in the script.

Avika believes that the Raju Gari Gadhi 3 will offer her the opportunity to branch out into horror films — a genre she has thus far not been part of. “Although the filmmakers had considered Kajal Aggarwal for the part, the talks with the actress with regards to her remuneration did not materialise. But when the project was offered to Avika, she grabbed it with both hands,” informs a source.
