“Udaan” and “Ugly” fame Ronit Roy has been roped in to play the antagonist in junior NTR starrer Telugu action drama “Jai Lava Kusa”, a source said.
The film will mark his Telugu debut.
“Ronit plays the villain. He has already started shooting and the team is currently filming an action sequence in a stone quarry in Hyderabad,” a source from the film’s unit said.
The source added that Kannada actor Duniya Vijay was originally considered for the role.
“The team felt Ronit would be a better bet because of the subject nativity. They’re really impressed with his work and are happy they’ve made the right choice to go with him,” he said.
