"Sobhita has been officially signed on. She even attended the film's official launch in Hyderabad on Thursday. The makers were on the lookout for a heroine who could look stunning as well as perform and Sobhita fit the bill," a source from the film's unit said
"I feel immense motivation in their conviction in me. It's a tremendous opportunity and I will give it my 100 per cent," Sobhita said in a statement.
"In the process of shooting the film, the more I discovered her, she wasn't like any of the models or Miss India winners I have ever met. It was a big surprise to see a Miss Earth who did not care about how she looked but did care whether she was getting the character and emotions right," Mr Kashyap
"My character is like a domesticated wolf. She plays Raghav's love interest. As a person, she has a very strong sense of self. She is mysterious, intriguing, but at the same time very enduringly vulnerable," said Sobhita
