The latest update is that the makers of Sarileru Neekevvaru have approached Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha
to shake a leg with Mahesh Babu in a special song. However, the actress has no qualms to groove to the introduction number albeit one condition to send the complete song before she signs on the dotted line. As director Anil Ravipudi is in no mood to shoot the song before November or December, music composer Devi Sri Prasad is yet to record it. That has come as a curse to the team, who failed to convince Sonakshi, despite her willingness to appear in the song. Left with no choice, Anil has decided to repeat his sentiment of casting his previous film's leading lady and has signed on Tamannaah Bhatia for the introduction number. That's how Mahesh missed a golden opportunity to work with Sonakshi and had she agreed to do this song, Sarileru Neekevvaru would have garnered pan-India attention!
