Negotiations with Nayantara were going on for some time to sign her for Venkatesh starrer 'Radha' which will be directed by the young director Maruti.
Like Lakshmi and Tulasi hero Venkatesh has again chosen a womanish name ‘Radha’ for his new movie. Venkatesh plays the role of Home Minister of Andhra Pradesh in the movie ‘Radha’. The Home Minsiter in the story loves a middle class woman and wants to marry her. Venkatesh wanted to pair with Nayan for the third time as he felt that she is a lucky heroine for him. Then Nayan was approached.
First of all Nayan never said yes for the offer. It is also heard that Nayantara demanded sky for the remuneration. Off late it is heard that Venkatesh could reason with Nayantara to agree for the remuneration offered.
The shooting of ‘Radha’ will start after Sankranti as the sources say.
