Actress Kajal Aggarwal has been finalised as the leading lady in megastar Chiranjeevi’s yet-untitled upcoming Telugu film, a remake of Tamil hit, Kaththi.
“Until last week she was only under consideration, but she was finally signed on last evening. She’s really excited to be part of the project as it happens to be a very prestigious project,” a source told IANS.
Despite three back-to-back flops this year, Kajal has managed to bag Ajith’s yet-untitled Tamil film and Chiranjeevi’s project. Teaming up with Chiranjeevi for the first time, Kajal will be seen reprising actor Samantha’s role from the original.
Kajal Aggarwal earlier said she is prepared for her Bollywood career to move at a slow pace as she has films to do in other languages as well. Kajal made her full-fledged Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn-starrer Singham in 2011 and later starred opposite Akshay Kumar in Special 26 (2013). Now three years later, she was seen in her third Hindi release – Do Lafzon Ki Kahani opposite Randeep Hooda.
The 30 year old actress is happy with the way her career in Bollywood is shaping up.
When asked about the long gap and going slow in Bollywood, Kajal told PTI in an inteview, “I am trying to strike a balance among all three (Tamil, Telugu and Hindi) cinemas. It is bound to go slow as I cannot be in all the three industries at the same time.”
“I have been fortunate enough to choose the best of whatever I get in any industry. I have been maintaining balance between Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films so there is bound to be a gap. I can’t be omnipresent,” she said.
Being directed by V.V. Vinayak, the project is being produced by Ram Charan under Konidela Productions banner.
