This is something that may have never happened before. We have seen films being remade with the same titles or even sequels, but it's a rare that an actor will be seen in two completely different movies of two completely different industries with two completely different stories but the same title of the film.
Shruti Haasan who will be seen in Prabhudheva's RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA opposite Girish Kumar, is currently busy shooting for another of her Telugu film called RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA. While the Hindi RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA is a love story, will see her donning the role of a shy village girl, the Telugu one is an action movie which will see her in the role of a fierce tom boy who is a social worker.
While one similarity is that both the films are set in villages, a source say that the stories they tell are completely opposite as are the genres. Shruti is currently shooting for the Telugu one where she is doing an action sequence which involves a lot of running and harness use. Incidentally, both the films will be releasing in the month of July. The Telugu one will release on the 9th of July down south while Prabhudheva's RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA releases on 19th of July. Another of Shruti's film D-DAY in which she plays a prostitue opposite Arjun Rampal also releases on the same day as Prabhudheva's RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA on 19th July!
