Pelli Choopulu changed a lot of things for Ritu Varma. While she became an overnight sensation, she is also much in demand now. In fact, the actress who had a couple of films coming up in Tamil and Telugu is getting a lot more offers now. She’s apparently turned choosy too. The latest buzz is that the Hyderabadi girl has landed a film — Dhruva Natchatiram with Vikram, to be helmed by Gautham Menon.
“The role was earlier offered to Anu Emmanuel, who had even participated in the shoot. However, Ritu has now begun shooting for the same as Anu couldn’t adjust her dates,” reveals a source. Apparently, Gautham was impressed by Ritu in Pelli Choopulu and was keen to work with her. He felt this would be a good role for her and roped her in. The director is known for his splendid portrayal of women onscreen. And if the past history of heroines who’ve worked with him is anything to go by, Ritu sure has got an interesting innings ahead of her!
