Southern actress Shruti Haasan is so busy with multiple projects that she had to turn down an offer to act with Allu Arjun in his upcoming yet-untitled Telugu thriller, under the direction of Harish Shankar.
The action thriller produced by Dil Raju is in the pre-production stage and will go on the floors in September.
It is reported that Harish Shankar wanted to rope in Shruti Haasan for the female lead, but she turned down the offer due to her prior commitments.
Allu Arjun and Shruti earlier paired up for blockbuster â€˜Race Gurramâ€™. Shruti worked under Harish Shankarâ€™s direction in the massive hit â€˜Gabbar Singhâ€™.
The 30-year-old is currently busy filming for Suriya-starrer Singam 3 and recently completed the first schedule of trilingual comedy Sabash Naidu.
The makers are now looking to finalise the female lead and it is said that Pooja Hegade is being considered and will be confirmed soon. The film is slated for release in the summer of 2017.
