I cast only Telugu-speaking actresses in my films: Director

Ahead of the release of ‘Sridevi Soda Center’, director Karuna Kumar has said that he has made it a point to cast only Telugu-speaking girls in both of his movies so far, ‘Palasa 1978’ and ‘SSC’. If the first one starred Nakshatra as the heroine, the soon-to-be-released ‘SSC’ has Anandhi as the heroine.

In his latest interview, Karuna Kumar said that he has approached at least eight Telugu girls so far for female lead roles. Most of them were not interested to work with him because he is not a star director. The filmmaker suggested that Telugu-speaking girls don’t evince much interest to work in our movies. Both ‘Palasa’ and ‘SSC’ have got a near-total Telugu-only cast. 

As for ‘SSC’, it stars Sudheer Babu in the lead. Set in East Godavari, the film will hit the cinemas on August 27.
