Nayantara to romance Chiranjeevi in ‘Kaththi’ remake

Tollywood’s leading heroine Nayantara will romance superstar Chiranjeevi in his 150th film which is a Telugu remake of the superhit film, AR Murugadoss's Tamil film ‘Kaththi’. However, Tollywood director VV Vinayak will be directing the Telugu version.

According to the latest report, Nayantara who starred in three back-to-back hits in Tamil, ‘Maya’, ‘Thani Oruvan’ and ‘Naanum Rowdy Thaan’ has bagged the meaty role.

Nayantara step into the role played by Samantha in the original version. Since it is a big budget  movie, Nayantara reportedly is charging big bucks for the movie. She might be asking 2 and half crore for the lead role.

Ram Charan, the producer of the film will take the final call. He will decide whether to take Nayantara or not as she is quoting too high remuneration. He is producing Chiranjeevi's Kaththi in association with Lyca Productions.

Her argument is that the movie would not help her in any way as the story focuses mostly on Chiranjeevi and she would mostly be appearing in songs.
