“Sobhita has been officially signed on. She even attended the film’s official launch in Hyderabad on Thursday. The makers were on the lookout for a heroine who could look stunning as well as perform and Sobhita fit the bill,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
Earlier, Ritu Varma was considered. However, for reasons unknown, the makers dropped the idea.
“They loved her performance in ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’, and felt she essayed a bold role with ease. She has an equally strong role in ‘Goodachari’, which will be a bonafide spy thriller,” the source added.
Sobhita is paired with Adivi Sesh in the film, which will be helmed by director duo Rahul Pakala and Shashikiran.
The film will be bankrolled by Abhishek Pictures.
