Chennai: Director Muralidhar, who has roped in actress Avika Gor in his upcoming yet-untitled romantic-comedy, says he was convinced to cast her as she has innocence suitable for love stories.
"When I saw her debut film, I thought she was made to play an innocent character. But it was not until I met her that I realised that she has the innocence most suitable for romantic roles. This was one of the strong reasons why I cast her in my film," Muralidhar said.
Avika, known for Hindi television soaps, made her cinematic debut with Telugu blockbuster ‘Uyyala Jampala’.
"We are on the lookout for a few more newcomers. As soon as we finalise them, we`ll start shooting," he said.
Avika is currently shooting for Telugu film ‘Lakshmi Raave Maa Intiki’, which features Naga Shaurya in the lead.
