In a surprising move that has become a major talking point, 27-year-old actress Meenakshi Chaudhary has reportedly signed on to star alongside 62-year-old veteran actor Venkatesh in an upcoming crime comedy directed by Anil Ravipudi. This unconventional pairing defies the current industry trend where most younger heroines today avoid working with significantly older male co-stars.

Meenakshi Chaudhary gained popularity for her captivating appearance and dance performances in the 2017 film Khiladi, starring alongside Ravi Teja. Despite a string of films like 'Lucky Bhaskar,' 'Mechanic Rocky,' and 'Matka' failing to establish her as a major star, she continues to gain work, usually with male leads closer to her age. Her decision to act opposite Venkatesh, who is around 35 years her senior, is highly unorthodox and has raised eyebrows.

While details are sparse, reports suggest that Chaudhary will play one of two key female roles - potentially Venkatesh's wife or ex-girlfriend character - that are crucial to the film's plot. Another likely younger heroine is expected to play the second significant female role.

The actor himself has spoken about the increasing difficulty in finding suitable heroines to work with at his age, despite previously co-starring with actresses like Priyamani, Payal Rajput, and Shraddha Srinath. Chaudhary's surprise signing defies this recent trend.

The fact that aging heroines are no longer paired with senior male stars signals a shift in the industry. However, Chaudhary's unconventional decision to star opposite the 62-year-old Venkatesh as the lead in a film has made her stand out from contemporary casting norms.
