Did Valmiki team replace dub smash star with Pooja Hegde?
Varun Tej was last seen in Anil Ravipudi’s F2: Fun and Frustration, which did wonders at the box office. The actor is now busy with the shooting of his upcoming flick Valmiki, directed by Harish Shankar.
It was earlier reported that Tamil actress Mrinalini Ravi, who is known for her popular Dubsmash videos, has been roped in as the heroine. Now, it looks like Varun Tej and the rest of the team has replaced her with Pooja Hegde.
Mrinalini has to give only 15 days to complete the film. It is said that the makers want to have as much star power as they can and has decided to replace Mrinalini Ravi.
It is now reported that Pooja Hegde is getting a whopping Rs 2 crore for her role in Valmiki. It seems producers and directors look at only star power and not actual talent.
