Kajal Aggarwal has finally confirmed that she will be starring in the Dhanush starrer to be directed by Balaji Mohan. The film is supposed to go on floors this September, and the fair starlet says the script is an interesting one and her role has a lot of scope in terms of performance.
This would be the first time the Jilla girl romances the VIP star on screen. Dhanush is, of course, on a career high right now with the success of Velai Illa Pattathaari, and his upcoming Bollywood flick Shamitabh too being hugely anticipated.
Yes, there were a few legal/social issues and hassles with VIP regarding him smoking in the film and commenting in an insulting manner about a certain chain of schools, but on the whole, the positives far outweigh the negatives with this flick. After all, Dhanush was also the producer of the movie and it was a milestone in his career being his 25th one.
So Kajal’s decision to star opposite Dhanush comes at a very good time for her too, considering the actress does not have a lot of projects in her kitty right now. Her huge pay demands recently made news and one wonders if she is still holding on to that with the Balaji Mohan film as well.
Rs 1.5 crores is a hefty sum after all…
This would of course mean that the actress would most probably only grace the screens in big projects with massive funding behind them.
However, when asked if she would consider acting alongside junior stars like Vijay Sethupathi and Sivakarthikeyan, Kajal said the script was the primary deciding criteria for her and nothing else.
However, it would be… erm, interesting to see the younger heroes’ films employ the diva at that exorbitant a rate.
Well, who knows… stranger things have happened in show business, right?
