Chennai: Actress Shruti Haasan has reportedly been approached for the role which was originally offered to Tamannah Bhatia in upcoming Telugu action-drama `Aagadu` featuring Superstar Mahesh Babu, says a source from the industry.
"Shruti`s name has come up for the lead role in `Aagadu`. However, nothing has been confirmed yet as Srinu Vaitla (director) has to take the final call. We should have some clarity in a couple of weeks," a source close to the director said.
Tamannah was finalised for the role a few months ago, but since Shruti is the most sought after actress in Telugu industry, she is being considered for the role.
While Tamannah`s last four Telugu films failed to rake in the moolah at the box-office, Shruti struck gold with her films such as `Gabbar Singh` and `Balupu`.
`Aagadu`, which is expected to go on floors by November, will bring together Srinu Vaitla and Mahesh Babu for the second time after Telugu blockbuster `Dookudu`.
Meanwhile, Shruti is awaiting the release of Telugu romantic-drama `Ramayya Vasthavayya`.
