Months after the Telugu remake of the Sriram Radhavan's critically acclaimed AndhaDhun was announced, the makers revealed the female cast of the film. On Saturday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared an official statement to report that Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh have been roped in for the Telugu remake. While the Baahubali star will step into Tabu's shoes, Radhika Apte's role will be portrayed by Nabha Natesh. "Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh are finalised to reprise Tabu and Radhika Apte's roles respectively... Nabha Natesh is happy to play the leading lady," said the statement. In AndhaDhun, Tabu played the role of a character with shades of grey while Radhika was cast as a hapless romantic.
