'AD' success lands Pranitha film with Junior NTR
Chennai: The success of recently released Pawan Kalyan-starrer Telugu action-drama 'Attarintiki Daredi' (AD) has made Pranitha an overnight star. She has bagged a plum role in Junior NTR's 'Rabhasa', which also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
Pranitha, who played one of the heroines in 'AD', has previously worked in two low-budget Telugu films 'Baava' and 'Em Pillo Em Pillado'.
"We have already shot with Pranitha for few days. I quite liked her performance in 'AD', and therefore, roped her in. Even my producer was happy with her work in the film and had approached her for our film," Santosh Srinivas, director of 'Rabhasa', told us.
"She plays a typical Andhraite girl and will mostly be seen sporting half-sari throughout the film," he added.
Interestingly, Samantha and Pranitha were part of 'Attarintiki Daredi', and now they will be working together again.
"Their roles are different and I had cast Samantha much before even 'AD' released. Therefore, I'm not trying to cash in on their success," said Santosh.
Produced by Bellam Konda Suresh, 'Rabhasa' is slated to hit the screens in the summer of 2014.
