Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu is not playing a visually impaired character in her upcoming yet-untitled Telugu project co-starring Ram Charan.
"Rumours doing the rounds that Samantha plays a blind character in Ram Charan's film is totally false and baseless," the film's spokesperson said.
Being directed by Sukumar, the film is said to be a period romantic drama set against village backdrop.
Ram currently sports thick beard for his role.
"He has undergone complete rural makeover for this project. Audiences are going to see a new Ram Charan, and they're going to love his look," a source said.
The shoot is currently underway in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh.
Jagapathi Babu has been confirmed to play a pivotal role, most likely of the antagonist.
Devi Sri Prasad will compose the tunes, while Rathnavelu will crank the camera.
