Nivetha Thomas joins Prabhas 21?
The actor will apparently play the second female lead in the futuristic sci-fi thriller, which stars Prabhas and Deepika Padukone
Nag Ashwin's upcoming film has been in the news ever since the makers confirmed Prabhas as the protagonist of the project. Billed to be a futuristic sci-fi thriller set against the backdrop of an imaginary third world war, the film, referred to as Prabhas 21, also features Deepika Padukone as the female lead. Following the speculations that stated the makers are considering Nivetha Thomas for the second lead's role, a reliable source has now confirmed the same.
"Nag Ashwin recently pitched the script to Nivetha and she really liked both the story and her character. She has given her verbal consent to play the part, and is delighted to share screen space with Prabhas and Deepika. However, she is yet to sign on the dotted line," says the source.
Produced by Ashwini Dutt under Vyjayanthi Movies banner, Prabhas 21 will go on floors early next year.
Nivetha is also part of Pawan Kalyan's Vakeel Saab, where she plays one of the three female leads. She is currently awaiting the release of the action thriller V that also stars Nani, Sudheer Babu and Aditi Rao Hydari.
