Is Trisha in or out?

Ever since famous kannada film director Yograj Bhat announced his new film Lagori, starring Puneet Rajkumar, rumour has been rife that the filmmaker was trying to zero in on actress Trisha for the female lead. In fact, various news portals even reported that Trisha had signed on as she liked the script of the film. But when we called Trisha’s mom to confirm the same, we were told that she was busy with her Tamil movie commitments and had not signed on for any Kannada film. So we called Yograj Bhat. “It is true that we tried to get her to act in the film. The producer, hero Puneet and I were very keen to have her on board. But somehow it did not work out,” says the filmmaker, who is still on the look out for a female lead. “We are now trying for a fresh face to act in Lagori,” he winds up.
