Young director Ajay Bhupathi scored a massive success with his first film Rx100. Starring Karthikeya and Payal Rajput in the lead roles, this film has become a surprise blockbuster at the box office. Even after scoring such a big hit, Ajay Bhupathi is not being able to launch his next film. From the past few months, it is being reported that Ajay's next film will be Maha Samudram. Touted to be a triangular love story, the director is unable to finalize the lead actors of it. We now hear that Ajay is planning to rope in Tamil actor Atharvaa for one of the lead roles in the movie.
Already, Ajay Bhupathi roped in Sharwanand for one of the lead roles. Now, Atharvaa is in talks for the other one. The leading lady is yet to get confirmed. We hear that the makers are currently in talks with Atharvaa. An official announcement will get made once the actor signs the dotted lines. Atharvaa made his Telugu debut last year with the movie Gaddalakonda Ganesh. He also got a lot of accolades for his role in the movie. If he signs this film, it becomes his second multi-starrer in Telugu.
Earlier, Ajay held talks with actors like Ravi Teja, Nithiin, Naga Chaitanya, and Siddharth. None of them worked out. Finally, it looks like Sharwanand and Atharvaa will be the ones to grab the roles. Ajay also considered Samantha and Aditi Rao Hydari for the female lead roles. As they declined the offer, he is now searching for a new one.
