The makers of Ram Charan’s upcoming as-yet-untitled trilingual film today revealed that Kiara Advani has been roped in as the leading lady.
The announcement was made to coincide with Advani's 29th birthday today.
Currently dubbed RC15, the film will be made simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.
“Joining us on this super exciting journey is the talented and gorgeous Kiara Advani! Welcome on board,” read a tweet from the makers.

On being signed up for the project, the actress said: "It's definitely one of the best birthday presents I have got so far. I am excited as well as nervous to work with renowned and experienced names of our film fraternity. I am eagerly waiting to begin the shoot and hoping that this incredible opportunity is translated wonderfully on screen!"
Ram Charan, who has just wrapped up shooting for SS Rajamouli’s RRR, is collaborating with Shankar for the first time. This project will also mark Shankar’s foray into Telugu filmdom.
Expected to be an action thriller, RC15 will have music by SS Thaman. The rest of the cast and crew will be decided soon.
Before commencing work on this project, Shankar will most likely complete the remainder of Indian 2, a sequel to his own blockbuster film Indian (1996), with Kamal Haasan. Indian 2, which is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions, also stars Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh, Bobby Simhaa, Kajal Aggarwal and Priya Bhavani Shankar.
The shooting of Indian 2 came to a standstill last year after an accident on the set killed three technicians.
