Dil Raju, who is introducing SS Rajamouli's former assistant Koti as a director, met her along with him and offered the female lead role in Napoleon. But the actress, who was not impressed by it, turned down the offer. An industry insider says that it was expected, as she is one of the most sought after actress in South Indian film industries.
The makers of the film have started searching for another face. It is said that Deeksha Seth is also being considered for the leading lady role. Other details about the film are yet to be announced.
