Samantha was earlier roped in by actor Dhanush to star opposite him in his ambitious film ‘Vada Chennai’. National Award Winning director Vetrimaaran has planned to make the movie as a three part saga. Although Samantha was the original choice, the makers have now decided to replace her as she is reluctant to allot bulk dates for the three-part film.
It may be noted that Samantha has stopped signing films as she is making plans to marry Naga Chaitanya and settle down. At a time when she is hesitating to sign films, how can she allot bulk dates for a film like ‘Vada Chennai’, which will be shot for a long time with three parts to be filmed?
An official announcement regarding Samantha’s replacement is expected soon. Amala Paul earlier paired up with Dhanush in hit film ‘VIP’.
