The Prabhas-starrer Radhe Shyam is being billed as a period romantic drama. While it is known that the Baahubali star plays a palm reader, we have now learnt that the leading lady, Pooja Hegde, will play a medico from a University in Italy. The Duvvada Jagannadham actress will be seen as Prerana, who meets Prabhas in a hospital after he is involved in an accident, and then their love story takes off.
A source from the unit says, “Pooja looks perfect in the role of a medico and her onscreen chemistry with Prabhas is great,” adding that she has pulled off the retro look with elan. Buzz is that she loved her role so much that the actress wanted to to dub her lines in Telugu. It’ll be interesting to see whether Pooja gets to dub in Telugu for the first time.
