Wondering what exactly we’re talking about?
Here’s the scoop.. Director Sunder C’s next flick with Vishal is titled Aambala and has slowly been building up hype since news about it began getting out. The lead actress in the film, as it has been announced now, is Hansika.
But it was also reported earlier on that actor Arya, who is a close personal friend of Vishal, was recommending Nayantara for that particular role. So most people felt the deal was a lock, given the friendship of the two actors and the successful prior working history of Nayan and Vishal in movies like Sathyam.
However, the wild card in the situation who popped up out of nowhere was Hansika. See, Hansika just so happens to be a close friend of director Sunder C’s wife – the actress Khushboo – and it is through this relationship that she convinced the film maker and managed to sign the dotted lines on this project.
And it is not like he needed much convincing, as he had just worked with her in the yet to release Aranmanai.
Meanwhile, it’s not like Nayan’s sitting at her home, killing time and looking for work or anything.. she’s quite busy with multiple projects including Idhu Namm Aalu, directed by Pandiraj and starring Simbu, which has for some reason stalled for now in the final stages of production.
Sigh. The business and the industry behind the screens that runs these well oiled machines which bring us such entertainment can be frustrating and perplexing things indeed.
