Naga Babu’s Daughter as Vekatesh’s Daughter in Piku
Piku starring Big B Amitabh Bachchan is a tremendous hit in Bollywood. Telugu remake rights for Piku were purchased by tollywood produce, who decided his brother Venkatesh for Amitabh’s role in telugu. His daughter’s role was played by Bollywood star Deepika Padukone in Hindi. Samantha was chosen for the role in tollywood. But later they reportedly felt that showing a star heroine as Venkatesh’s daughter would not be great. So, Naga Babu’s daughter Niharika Konidela is being discussed for the role as she is new to films and remuneration would also be much lesser than that has to be paid to Samantha. Also Suresh Babu thinks that if Niharika makes her debut with a good role like this, mega fans would also support her, say sources. If things fall in place, the first heroine from mega family will make her tollywood debut in 2016.
