Star rivalries at the box office is one thing, but heroine rivalry for one film is a completely different matter. We know that the makers of Mahesh's Aagadu wanted to have Shruti Hassan as the film's heroine opposite the tall and handsome actor, despite giving hopes to Tamanna earlier.
Latest twist in the tale is that Shruti and Tamanna have become rivals beyond the professional sphere. Tammu had allegedly spoken ill of Shruti with other heroes in Tollywood, saying it's only Kamal Hassan's name that is getting her offers. Shruti too makes sure she gives tit for tat.
Their rivalry has now affected Aagadu, where Shruti and Tamanna have refused to work for the film if the other is present. Now, Aagadu makers have decided to go with someone else and replace both. Possibly, Mahesh will take a note and suggest someone, as many beauties are trying hard to impress wife Namratha. Mahesh Babu's wife is said to be the main person who recommends a heroine for the actor.
Lately, heroines seem to be scarce in Tollywood, with even Samantha citing date problems. She is working with Suriya for Rowdy, it's heard. Kriti Sanon, Mahesh's heroine in 1 Nenokkadine has impressed everyone with her talent and screen presence. Let us wait and see if she takes a prominent place in the hearts of viewers.
