Did Shraddha Kapoor Say No To Jr NTR?

Shraddha Kapoor Jr NTR - Sakshi Post

The makers of RRR are still on a hunt to find a replacement for the British actress Daisy Edgar Jones, who was earlier roped in for a role opposite Jr NTR in the in SS Rajamouli's upcoming film. She had apparently backed out of the project due to unavoidable reasons one of which was due to ‘ family circumstances’ that she had to give up the movie offer.

Daisy also took to Instagram to reveal the news quoting, “RRR: Unfortunately due to family circumstances I am unable to participate in filming for this wonderful film. The script is truly brilliant and it’s such a great character; I hope whomever they cast receives as warm a welcome as I have and I wish the production all the best,” she posted. She was trolled heavily by JrNTRs fans who were offended that she said no to a role opposite the star, an opportunity that any actress would dream of that too for a debutante like her.

Nevertheless the search continued to find a replacement for Daisy and by the looks of it they needed a girl with Anglicised features, which was evident by the earlier choice. Amy Jackson was next in line apparently but that idea was also dropped as she was pregnant with her first child. Amy Jackson is engaged to multi-millionaire George Panayiotou is expecting her first child in the month of October.

The next in sight for RR makers was Sahoo actress Shraddha Kapoor. Shraddha Kapoor who has become extremely busy in her career with her roles in films like Chhichhore, Street Dancer 3D, Baaghi 3 and the Prabhas starrer-Saaho in her kitty, had to turn down the biopic of Saina Nehwal India’s ace shuttler, because of her jam packed schedule.She was quickly replaced by Parineeti Chopra for the role.

So though her name was on the top of the list by the RRR makers , it seems like they have reached a dead end with regards to her joining on board as she has become extremely being busy with multiple films and can't adjust her schedules.

In another tragedy of sorts much to the chagrin of Tarak’s fans, Jr NTR had injured his wrist as he was seen wearing a bandage on his right hand. Sources inform us that it is a mild injury and Jr NTR can take part in regular shoot without putting the project on hold for a while. Earlier Ram Charan had hurt his during a work out session which put him out of action for sometime.

Rajamouli’s RRR is set in the pre-independence era of India and has Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead roles. The film is being made on a massive budget of Rs 300 crore under the DVV Entertainments Banner.
