Naga Chaitanya has walked out of Naragasooran. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the actor was roped in to play the lead in the Arvind Swamy film but backed out of the project recently due to ‘date issues’. The film was to be Naga Chaitanya’s Tamil debut.
The makers are currently on the look-out for a replacement, following which a first look poster will be released.
The film’s script revolves around four characters. “Each of them would have equal weight-age in the movie and it is a performance-oriented role for everyone,” a source told DC.
A recent addition to the cast is actress Shriya Saran. She has been signed on to play an important role in the film. Malayalam actor Prithviraj’s elder brother, Indrajith Sukumaran, is also part of the cast. The shooting will reportedly begin early August this year.
