RX100 has given a huge craze to Payal Rajput and the actress is looking at some lucrative opportunities in Telugu. She has been busy with Punjabi films off late and very choosy about Telugu films.
She did accept to be part of NTR biopic recently. In the movie, she will have a song and few scenes with NTR as Jayasudha. Nandamuri Balakrishna wants NTR Kathanayakudu to have all the important films of NTR touched and he will play all the roles too.
So, the movie team approached Nitya Menon to play Savitri, still unconfirmed but Samantha to play Jamuna, Rakul Preet Singh to play Sridevi and now, Payal Rajput as Jayasudha.
Movie shoot has started again after a brief stoppage and it will continue till second week of December and then finish the NTR Mahanayakudu part in January, it seems.
