Director Puri Jagannadh has immense respect for maverick director Ram Gopal Varma. Time and again he doesn’t forget to sing his praise. Approximately 3 months ago, Puri confirmed that RGV had shown him the video footage of Shanvi Srivastava, the heroine of Manchu Vishnu starrer ‘Rowdy’. Puri did say that he liked her performance and felt she has amazing screen presence. And she is being considered for Puri’s next project which is going to be either with NTR or Mahesh.
Finally Puri’s next project with NTR has been finalised. The film was officially launched on 1st August. It’s announced that the regular shooting will happen during the month of August. Still no trace of Shanvi. Kajal Agarwal was offered the main heroine role. There was still a chance for second fiddle. But Puri chose Madhurima Banerjee for that pivotal role in NTR’s movie. Seems Puri has altogether dumped the idea of roping in Shanvi for his new project. Poor Shanvi she was quite elated even at the idea of being considered by Puri for his film.
