Ritika Singh, the kick boxer-turned-actress, who made heads turn with her performance in "Irudhi Suttru" and "Aaandavan Kattalai", is currently busy shooting for Venkatesh-starrer Guru, the Telugu remake of Irudhi Suttru.
In the film, it is believed that she plays a hardcore Pawan Kalyan fan and will also be seen dancing in front of a huge cutout of the actor.
The makers were initially wondering, as to whose fan they should make Ritika play in the film. It was her own suggestion that she would like to play Pawan Kalyanâ€™s fan.
In the original, Ritika was shown as a fan of Dhanush, and that worked in favor of the film.
Being directed by Sudha Kongara, the film focuses on the relationship between a washed up boxing coach and his newly found protĂ©gĂ©, who sells fish for a living.
Venkatesh reprises Madhavanâ€™s role in the remake, and the former had to shed fat and look muscular to play his part.
Guruâ€™s shooting is currently progressing in Hyderabad and the makers are planning for a brief north India schedule soon.
Santhosh Narayanan has been retained to compose the tunes for the remake and the makers have roped in a fresh set of actors to match Telugu sensibilities.
