Nayantara"s denial came to light late after she did not attend the Mahurtha of the movie on October 18 last Sunday. It was said that Ravichandran had explained her about her role in the movie Keechaka over phone. She had happily accepted the offer, said producer Maniratna. Then what made her leave the project at the last moment. Sources claim that Ravi had told her about a bikini scene (swimwear), but she did not want to wear bikini. So she left the movie.
However, the actress had sizzled in bikini alongside actor Ajith Kumar in Tamil movie Billa 2007. What happened to her now? Sources claim that Nayan has vowed not to show off her bikini body. She had told producer Maniratna that thereafter she wants to appear only in sari because she is planning to marry her beau choreographer-turned-director Prabhu Deva. Since she is nearing her marriage, she has even decided not to sign more movies.
Keechaka producer Maniratna is now hunting for another heroine after Nayan said good bye to the movie. “We are in helpless condition after Nayan refused to play the female lead role in the movie Keechaka. So we are looking for another suitable actress for it," says the producer.
