Oru Naal Podhuma, a film casting Madhavan and being directed by Prathap Pothan has been dropped due to various reasons. This was officially announced by the director of the film.
As the shooting was expected to commence in Canada, the crew had applied for visas. But the embassy delayed issuing of the visas to the crew after their long wait of over 2 months.
Meanwhile, the 2 months' call sheet given by Madhavan also expired, and the actor got busy with his other projects. At present Madhavan is acting in 2 films simultaneously, which are titled as Leelai and Vazhthukkal. He signed up for 2 more Tamil films after the completion of his earlier projects. So he found it difficult to allot fresh dates to Prathap Pothan. The director also understood the embarrassing situation for the actor, and accepted his decision.
Finally, Madhavan offered his call sheets for mid November this year, but the producer did not show any interest. So, Prathap has decided to do the film for some other producers towards the end of this year.
