Soundarya rejected to play opposite Ali as heroine in Yamaleela, reveals SV Krishna Reddy
Senior Tollywood director SV Krishna Reddy has revealed that actress Soundarya was initially finalised to play opposite Ali as a heroine in Yamaleela. He stated Soundarya had rejected the film citing Ali was not an established hero after receiving an advance amount.
“I informed her that I will change the heroine for Yamaleela, not Ali as a hero,” he said. The film became a sensational hit with Indraja replacing Soundarya as lead actress. Krishna Reddy mentioned that Soundarya requested him to give a chance to dance with Ali for a song in the Subhalagnam movie for rejecting to act with Ali.
