Ritika Singh will play a Pawan Kalyan fan in the Telugu film Guru, according to a Hindustan Times report. Guru is an official remake of Ritika’s Tamil-Hindi sport film Irrudhi Suttru and will be directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad. This version features Venkatesh as the coach, a role originally played by R Madhavan.
Ritika had played a Dhanush fan in the original.
Santhosh Narayanan, who had composed for the original, will also compose for this version.
Irrudhi Suttru received much acclaim when it released in January this year. R Madhavan played a former boxer who mentors a fish-vendor Madhie (Ritika Singh). Ritika Singh’s performance fetched her a Special Jury Award at the National Awards Ceremony this year.
