Chennai, Sep 4 (IANS) Actress Isha Koppikar, known for working in films such as “Company”, “Kaante” and “Shabri”, will reportedly be seen playing the role of a police officer in a yet-untitled Telugu film.

“She was officially finalised on Saturday. It’s her return to Telugu cinema after a decade, and she will be seen in the role of a fierce cop. The role will see her demonstrate her Hapkido skills,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

Hapkido, a form of self-defence, is a highly eclectic style of Korean martial arts.

“She’s the vice president of the Hapkido Federation of India. In the film, she will be seen performing stunts, and she’s planning to bring professionals from China and Japan to choreograph the action involving Hapkido,” the source said.

Some reports earlier suggested that Esha Gupta was considered for the role.

“There must have been some confusion with the names. Hence, Isha would have become Esha. We never even considered Esha because we were looking for someone senior for the role,” he said.

To be directed by Sudheer Varma, the project was tipped to be a sequel to 2013 Telugu crime-drama “Swamy Ra Ra”.

“This isn’t a sequel. It was speculated as one because it marks the reunion of the director and Nikhil who worked together in ‘Swamy Ra Ra’. This is a fresh script, and the makers are yet to finalise the title. The regular shooting will start from next month,” he added.

The project is being bankrolled by Abhishek Pictures.
