Filmmaker S S Rajamouli had been searching for a Caucasian, preferably British, actress to play a key role in his Ramcharan Teja-NTR Jr-starrer, RRR.
Now, the search has ended.
The actress chosen to star opposite NTR Jr is the Irish beauty Alison Doody, who had made her big screen debut in the 1985 James Bond film, A View To A Kill.
She also starred in Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade and the Michael Caine-starrer, The Actors.
It is baffling why Rajamouli thought of casting this relatively unknown actress opposite NTR Jr, who is much younger than her. While NTR Jr is 36, Alison is 53 years old.
A more crucial question is the size of Alia Bhatt’s role. One hears she has much less to do than Alison Doody.
