Reports suggest that Jyothika’s decision to opt out of the project has stunned the team members who are now looking for a suitable replacement for her.
It may be recalled that only recently the team had officially announced that several top actors including Samantha, Jyothika, Kajal Aggarwal, Vadivel, Sathyan and Sathyaraj had been roped in actor Vijay’s 61st film that was being directed by Atlee. The makers had also said that A R Rahman would be scoring the music for this film and that its cinematography would be taken care of by G K Vishnu.
Although reports did not mention why Jyothika had chosen to opt out, her decision has reportedly put the filmmakers in a fix as they had planned to first shoot portions pertaining to both Vijay and Jyothika. These portions were to be shot over a period of 28 days. Now, news is that the team is only shooting scenes pertaining to Vijay.
