After staging a comeback to Telugu cinema with Raju Gari Gadhi 3, Avika has landed projects with Naveen Chandra (the remake of Marathi superhit Happy Journey) and Kalyaan Dhev. She has now signed a key role in Vikram Kumar’s Thank You, starring Naga Chaitanya.
The filming of Vikram Kumar’s next Thank You, which was officially announced a couple of months ago, has kicked off in Hyderabad on Monday, with lead star Naga Chaitanya joining the sets on day one itself. While the makers haven’t disclosed names about the film’s leading ladies, The Pioneer, however, has understood from a source that Avika Gor has been signed as one leading lady. “Avika has a substantial part like the other two heroines. Besides her role, the fact that the film is giving her an opportunity to work with Vikram and PC Sreeram meant that she didn’t think twice to sign the project,” said a source.
Vikram is directing Thank You from a story of writer-director BVS Ravi. Speaking to us recently, the former said that it’s a story that needs to be told now. “It would resonate with the audience at various levels. That said it’s not a message-oriented film but has an undercurrent of something which is wonderful. It got me connected to the story in the first place. It has got all mainstream elements — humor, drama, romance, and a little bit of action,” the director had said. According to the grapevine, Vikram is in talks with Rakul Preet Singh and Priyanka Arul for the other heroine roles.
