With so much buzz surrounding the female leads of the project, the makers decided to make things official through a press meet.
The much-expected event took place this morning at Hyderabad where director Rajamouli, actors Charan and Jr NTR were present, along with the producer. The team has bought one Bollywood diva and one Hollywood beauty onboard to play the female leads, pairing opposite the male leads.
