Trust Trivikram Srinivas to go for the right heroine. Be it in choosing Shriya Saran for Nuvve Nuvve, Trisha for Athadu, Illeana for Jalsa, Anushka for Khaleja and Illeana for Julayi, he has never missed the target. Illeana's characterization (as a dull and unfashionable lady in Julayi) might not have worked well, but Tri's heroines are usually very entertaining.
The good news is that his next heroine is Samantha, a fitting choice so to speak. (Well, has he not always gone for the reigning diva of the day and presented her differently?)
Samantha will be paired up with Pawan Kalyan in this as yet untitled flick. Earlier, Anjali's name was buzzed for the role.
The film will go on the floors from November.
