We have reported earlier that Varun Tej’s Space film to be directed by Sankalp Reddy will have two heroines. According to the latest reports, one of the heroines has been locked, and she is a Bollywood beauty.
‘Cheliyaa’ fame Aditi Rao Hydari has come on board to play Varun Tej’s colleague in the Space film i.e. she also plays an astronaut in the Sankalp Reddy directorial. Varun and Aditi will go on a Space mission in the film. Aditi will have almost as much screen time as Varun since the film is mainly about the Space mission.
Aditi, who has her roots in Hyderabad’s royal family, is showing keen interest to make her mark in the Telugu film industry. Her first direct Telugu film, Indraganti’s “Sammohanam” will release in June. She was supposed to play Venky’s partner in Teja’s film, but she opted out citing clash of dates with the new film in Mani Ratnam’s direction.
So, Varun-starrer Space film will be Aditi’s second direct Telugu film. Reports suggest that Aditi will also undergo training in Kazakhstan just like Varun did, before commencing the shoot.
The film will have one more female lead, her role will be comparatively small. She will play Varun’s love interest. The regular shooting will commence next month.
