Actress Nakshatra, daughter of director D Rajendra Babu, has signed up for the film Fair & Lovely. The film stars Prem and Swetha Srivatsa. Director Raghuram says Nakshatra has an important character to play and he had earlier planned to cast a newcomer. But he finally decided on Nakshatra after watching her on TV.
Babu died recently and Raghuram did not want to contact her immediately after the tragedy. He waited sometime before asking her for the role which she accepted. The shooting for the film is underway in Mysore. Nakshatra will join the shooting on Monday. Raghuram however did not specify if the film is a love triangle or if Nakshatra is only making a special appearance.
