According to the sources, director Teja is considering to rope in Payal as the lead in his upcoming film. Teja offered Payal an item song in his last film Sita. He might have been impressed with her skills while working on that song and given her full-length role in his next.
It is also being heard that Teja replaced Payal instead of Kajal in this movie. It is already known that Kajal was supposed to do a film with her mentor-director after Sita but she backed out due to the disastrous result of the film. Now, Payal seems to have got that offer and we have to see whether it turns as a boon or bane for her.
