Shivani Rajasekhar reveals reasons for rejecting the Uppena film. It is widely known that Actress Krithi Shetty made her debut as the female lead in the romantic drama Uppena, directed by Sukumar’s disciple Buchi Babu Sana. The film also introduced Mega nephew, Panja Vaishnav Tej, to the screen. The film became the first 100-crore club film to star a debut hero in India. Not only that, but it also won the Best Telugu Film Award at the 69th National Film Awards.
After this film, Krithi Shetty’s career skyrocketed with multiple offers. But it was not Krithi Shetty who got the opportunity to act in the movie. The chance went to Shivani Rajasekhar, the eldest daughter of Jeevitha and Rajasekhar.
It’s been a long time since Shivani Rajasekhar started her career as a heroine. But she failed to achieve the desired level of stardom. However, in a surprising turn of events, Shivani Rajasekhar reveals reasons for rejecting the Uppena film.
In a recent interview, Shivani said she was the first to receive the offer to act in Uppena, but she turned it down. When asked why Uppena was rejected, Shivani Rajasekhar revealed that the story draft had bold and intimate scenes in the script, and she was not sure she could do them comfortably.
However, as fate would have it, the script was changed afterward and went to Krithi Shetty. Shivani Rajasekhar stated that even now, if she has to do any lip lock or intimate scenes, she must ask herself.
It is widely known that Krithi Shetty has acted in the film Uppena, and the character had a few intimate scenes. It’s Shivani’s bad luck that the script was changed after she rejected it, and in a way, it helped Krithi.
