Shriya Saran will once again team up with Prithviraj to scorch the screens in the Malayalam movie Hero.
The film is scheduled to begin production in November and will be directed by Deepan.
Earlier, Trisha was rumoured to play the lead actress in the movie, making it her debut vehicle in the Malayalam cinema, but had to back out due to scheduling conflicts. Deepan confirms that Shriya will now play the role. This will be Shriya's third Malayalam movie after the Mammootty-Prithviraj hit Pokkirri Raja and Mohanlal's Casanova. Hero will also star Srikanth in an important role.
