Actress Tamannaah Bhatia has been roped in to feature in a special song in upcoming Telugu-Kannada bilingual film ‘Jaguar,’ which marks the acting debut of Nikhil Kumar, grandson of ex-Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda.
Although Shruti Haasan has been approached for the same, it seems Tamannaah has made the cut. This would be the second time that the latter would be performing in an item number with a rookie. She earlier sizzled alongside Bellamkonda Sreenivas for ‘Alludu Sreenu.’
Producers in a statement said: “Really glad Tamannaah has agreed to star in a special song, which will be a major plus to the film. The song will be lavishly shot in a specially erected set in Annapurna Studios from September 5.”
Directed by A Mahadev, the film is gearing up for release on October 7 on the occasion of Dussehra. Tipped to be made on a budget of Rs 75 crore, the film also stars Jagapathi Babu, Raghu Babu, Ramya Krishnan and Brahmanandam. The film’s story is by ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ writer Vijayendra Prasad.
