Shooting for Muniratna Kurukshetra is nearly done, with a long schedule left that starts from Friday. The makers hopes to complete the movie by December 20.

The team, which had managed to rope in the right star cast in Darshan’s 50th film, took a while to decide who could be paired opposite the Challenging Star. And the latest update will throw everyone by surprise.

It has been bagged neither by Regina Cassandra nor by Ramya Nambeesan, as earlier reports suggested, but by Kannada actress Meghana Raj. She is to play princess Bhanumati to Duryodhana.

You could peg it to turn of luck after her engagement with Chiranjeevi Sarja, but according to our source she was chosen after much deliberation.Our source says, “Producer Muniratna of this mega project, directed by Naganna, was particular that they rope in a Kannada heroine to play Bhanumanti and they chose Meghana. They had even kept scenes with Duryodhana and Bhanumati for the last and now they are happy to have made the right choice.”

Meghna has always loved to be part of period dramas, especially after Allama Prabhu, in which she had a meaty role to play. In this movie,she also gets to share screen space with Darshan. Meghna will join the team from this schedule.

This magnum opus, which has music scored by V Harikrishna, features a host of actors including Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja, Sneha, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Nikil Kumar, Hariprriya,  Saikumar, Ravi Shankar and  Srinath among others.
