…Kamal’s search for a heroine for Viswaroopam continues
Kamal Haasan still does not seem to have found the right heroine to romance in his upcoming action film Viswaroopam. It all started with Dabangg’s Sonakshi Sinha signing on Kamal Haasan’s Viswaroopam and then supposedly opting out once the project didn’t start in July.
However, there were rumours that she ‘was asked to leave’ as she didn’t develop a lean physique for the film. Meanwhile, Deepika had also apparently been offered Rajini’s Rana and Kamal’s spy thriller but the young diva opted for Rajini’s film over Kamal’s. Vidya Balan, who also is said to have been approached, turned down the film for reasons unknown.
Once it was clear that none of these Bollywood actresses had signed on the film, Sonam Kapoor’s name was suddenly doing the rounds but the actress clearly denied being approached by Kamal. Then it was the turn of Zaheer Khan’s girlfriend, Isha Sharvani’s name to crop up. She’s also believed to have been roped in for Viswaroopam, but clearly not in a role opposite Kamal. Most recently, sources said the 180 girl Priya Anand was called for a screen test by Kamal but the actor’s spokesperson denied this.
Now however it looks like Kamal has zeroed in on none other than the Bollywood girl who has made Kollywood home, Sameera Reddy! A source says, “Sameera Reddy has been approached by the makers recently to play a role in Viswaroopam. However, as the actress is busy shooting for Vettai and Vedi and Kamal is out of country, they haven’t yet got an opportunity to meet and discuss the movie. Once that happens, a clearer picture will emerge.”
From Sonakshi to Sameera, Kamal’s search for a Bollywood heroine for Viswaroopam clearly continues. And it looks like the actor is keeping the cards close to his chest for now. We wonder who will choose to do the role finally!
