After a brief hiatus following the underwhelming performance of “Liger” at the box office, director Puri Jagan is back in action with his next project—a sequel to the sensational mass entertainer, “Ismart Shankar.” This much-anticipated film, titled “Double Ismart,” sees the return of the charismatic Ram Pothineni in a power-packed role. However, the buzz around the leading lady and the music composer has been intense.
In a surprising twist, neither Nabha Natesh nor Nidhie Aggerwal, who starred in the original, made the cut for the sequel. Puri Jagan has also decided to part ways with composer Mani Sharma for this venture. What’s creating waves in the industry is the recent revelation that the director has had discussions with Bollywood’s rising star, Sara Ali Khan, who has enthusiastically accepted the role of the leading lady. Speculations suggest that she might grace the sets in just a matter of weeks.
For quite some time, there has been speculation about Sara Ali Khan’s much-anticipated Tollywood debut. Initially, the opportunity slipped through her fingers, landing in the lap of Ananya Panday. Sara and Janhvi Kapoor were once contenders for the coveted heroine role in “Liger,” but scheduling conflicts led them to miss out.
Now, with Sara’s potential role in “Double Ismart,” all eyes are on whether this sensational news will officially materialize or if it’s destined to become yet another tantalizing rumor.
