Time and ego are the two key factors which always rule the tinsel town. When Raju Sundaram, the choreographer turned director signed Ajith for his maiden venture 'Akbar', he opted for 'Sivaji' fame Shreya for the female lead role. When asked, she didn't react positively. A month after she was approached, Shreya replied positively but Raju went ahead in search of a new actress.
Yes, now it has been officially announced that Shreya Saran, the top heroine of Tamil Cinema, is out of Ajith's next project Akbar. Ajith, the ultimate star has made it clear to his producers Ayngaran International and director Raju Sundaram that he would prefer a replacement for Shreya as his heroine in this film.
Raju has now searching a new face as Ajith's lead lady and sources confirmed that he had already flown to Mumbai and talking with some model coordinators to get a fresh girl for this film. The main reason behind Shreya's omission from 'Akbar' is her acceptance to perform an item number with comedian Vadivelu in 'Indhiralogathil Na. Azhagappan'. Since from Raaja Ajith's Box Office disaster, Vadivelu hasn't had good relationship with him and has not acted in any of his films.
For Shreya it may be a setback but career wise she is doing extremely well with two Hindi films on hand apart from her Prakash Amrithraj project with actor Jessie Metcalfe. In this list too is Vikram's megaproject Kandasamy with Vikram. Talks are also on for a role in Kamal Hassan's next film after Dasavatharam.
