Pooja Hegde is currently the most happening actress in Telugu cinema with back to back blockbusters in a row. She is also the go-to choice for many big-ticket films, but the actress is choosy about the films she signs. According to a few sources, Pooja was approached to play the lead lady in the Telugu remake of Bollywood hit comedy-thriller Andhadhun. Given the fact that her role has not much significance in the film, Pooja turned down the offer. Reports also claim that Pooja rejected the film as she is not happy with her fee. Nithiin is stepping into the shoes of Ayushmann Khurrana's role, while Merlapaka Gandhi will helm the remake.
