Aishwarya Rajessh replaces Nivetha Pethuraj in SDT 14
The World Famous Lover actor has reportedly joined the ongoing schedule of the Sai Dharam Tej-starrer in Hyderabad
Actor Nivetha Pethuraj has exited from Deva Katta's new film with Sai Dharam Tej due to a change in shooting schedules. Cinema Express has now learned that Aishwarya Rajessh has taken over from Nivetha and has started shooting for the part recently.
"The COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent lockdown had delayed the production by five-six months. Consequently, the makers have rescheduled and Nivetha, who could not accommodate her call sheets, opted out of the film," reveals a source, adding, "Aishwarya came on board in the nick of time and has joined the sets for the ongoing schedule, which is currently underway in the outskirts of Hyderabad."
Touted to be a socio-political drama, the film is loosely based on real incidents that happened in Eluru in 2004. The film has Ramya Krishnan essaying the role of a Chief Minister, while Sai Tej will be seen as a doctor.
Produced by J Bhagawan and Pulla Rao, the film, known as SDT 14, is tentatively titled Republic.
