In an unexpected turn of events, it has been revealed that Kriti Shetty will now be the lead actress in the upcoming film directed by Nithiin and Venky Kudumula, replacing Rashmika Mandanna. The initial promotions had featured Kriti Shetty’s name before being subsequently replaced by Kriti Shetty herself, replacing Rashmika Mandanna.
Amidst this development, Kriti Shetty has now been confirmed as the female lead, but not as a sole lead, rather as one of the two female leads in the film. This has come as the latest news, with speculations suggesting that she might have a guest role or something similar.
Prior to the film “Caste D,” Kriti Shetty had been approached for this film, but she had declined citing scheduling conflicts. With the replacement of Rashmika Mandanna, Kriti Shetty has stepped in and is ready to take on her role. While the film had already begun its shooting with Rashmika Mandanna, the decision to replace her has caused some ripples in the industry, according to Inside Sources.
