The actress will play the female lead in the Sampath Nandi directorial.


Fresh after signing a special song in Mahesh Babu’s forthcoming film, Sarileru Neekevvaru, Tamannaah Bhatia has apparently given the nod for another project. This time, the actress will be seen as the leading lady.

The film’s director, Sampath Nandi, came out with the details days after the official announcement of the film was made. We hear that the director had recently met Tamannaah for narrating the script. Word also has it that Tamannaah wants to take up the project as the role is demanding and that’s the kind of role she has been keenly seeking.


Tamannaah has earlier worked with Sampath Nandi in the film, Bengal Tiger. That, we’re told, is yet another reason for her high confidence levels about being able to portray her character in a new manner.

“Tamannaah is eager and has been making efforts to come on board. However, she’s yet to sign on the dotted lines as other modalities are being discussed,” a source tells us.

The action entertainer, which is being produced by Chitturi Srinivas Rao, will go on floors soon.
