Apparently, director Pandiraj and producer T Rajendar decided on Taapsee after going through a lengthy list of names to play the role. They reportedly considered actresses like Sanchita Shetty and Nanditha.
They settled on Taapsee finally because of one particular reason. They have plans to release dubbed version of the movie later, especially in Telugu. Taapsee is one actress who has a popularity across multiple industries and this would help the producers sell the dubbing rights or so they say.
Now the question whether Taapsee will green light the whole thing is because the role is after all that of a secondary character to Nayantara’s lead, and it is unclear how the actress will make her decision as her career graph is looking up these days as she has certain interesting projects in her kitty.
She is currently starring in the upcoming Hindi movie Runningshaadi.com.
Idhu Namma Aaalu would be a good project to be associated with though as it has quite a few things going for it. Not only is the flick featuring the reunion of Nayantara and Simbu on screen after 8 long years, it also has Simbu’s brother Kuralarasan debuting as a composer.
There are a few interesting things like candid shots of Nayantara being used in song sequences and such which has also drawn attention to the movie and help build up its hype.
Let’s see what Taapsee’s decision is going to be..
