When producer/actor Prakashraj announced his plans to remake the
Malayalam blockbuster Udayanaanu Thaaram in Tamil, there
were some things he didn't have any second thoughts about.
Prithviraj was going to play Mohanlal's role. Prakashraj was
keen on playing the role that Shrinivasan did. Problem was with
finding a heroine.
Prakashraj had initially selected Trisha for the role. But soon
she announced that she wasn't interested. Now, nobody knows why she
walked out. We don't know if she was removed because the filmmakers
were not comfortable about the problems with her fan-clubs. Maybe
she didn't want to play the role of an over-the-hill actress who
ends up falling in love with a rookie director.
