Vamshi asks Pooja Hegde to watch Oopiri to prepare for Mahesh Babu's 25th
The director gave the actor a DVD of his earlier film to watch before they begin shooting for Mahesh Babu's 25th film
As reported earlier by CE, last week Pooja Hegde signed on the dotted line to play the female lead opposite Mahesh Babu in his 25th film. A source close to her confirms to us that the actor met director Vamshi Paidipally and is excited to begin work on her new film.
“Vamshi gave a detailed narration to Pooja and the actor is pleased by the way her role has been conceived by the director. She is ecstatic to work with the team,” informs the source.
Interestingly, Vamshi wanted Pooja to see one of his films before beginning the shooting for his new film. “Vamshi gave Pooja a DVD of Oopiri as he wanted her to really get the kind of work he does before they start the proceedings,” the source adds.
Being produced jointly by Aswini Dutt and Dil Raju, the film’s principal shooting will begin in March. Devi Sri Prasad is scoring the music, while PS Vinod cranks the lens.
