Mehreen, who has a handful of films lined up for 2017, is in negotiations to star in Akhil Akkineni’s new movie. The 21-year-old-star may end up playing one of the female leads in the film, which is going to be directed by Vikram K Kumar of Manam fame.
“The filmmakers have initiated talks with Mehreen. She is one of the fresh faces in demand and is a star in the making. She is sorting out her call sheets and is yet to give her nod,” informs a source close to the Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gadha star.
It is also learnt that Malayali girl Anupama Parameswaran might play the second fiddle to Akhil. “Anupama is also approached but nothing has been finalised,” the source adds. Produced by Nagarjuna Akkineni, the film’s script has been locked. In all probability, the project is expected to go on floors this summer. AR Rahman is scoring the music.
