Filmmaker Teja wants to cast Shweta Basu

Chennai Telugu filmmaker Dharma Teja is keen to rope in Shweta Basu Prasad, who was recently caught in an alleged' prostitution scandal, for his next film.

He already has a role for her, but is yet to approach the ‘Makadee’ actress.

"Shweta is a very talented actress. I have a role for her in my next film. I would like her to play it but I'm yet to approach her," Teja said.

Teja plans to approach her once he's done with the script.

Shweta, who was last seen in the 2012 Telugu film ‘Nuvvekaddunte Nenakkadunta’, has also worked in films such as ‘Kotha Bangaru Lokam’ and ‘Kalavar King’.

Reportedly, she has currently taken up a job at Phantom Films, which belongs to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap.
