Poonam Bajwa, the telugu actress, will play the leading ladys role opposite Dhanush in his forthcoming film, Pollathavan. Though the title for the film has been given by Rajini, the director Vetrimaran wants to retain Dhanush's playboy image in this film against Rajini's wishes. According to the director, Pollathavan is an action-cum-romance film. The shooting of the film will commence soon after the completion of the talky portion of Yaaradi Nee Mohini. G.V.Prakash Kumar of Veyyil fame, will score the music, and Velraj will handle the camera. Poonam Bajwa, who is very familiar to Telugu audiences after the hits like Boss I love you with Nagarjuna and Premante Inte with Navdeep, is making her Tamil debut with Pollathavan. Due to her open mind to glamour and her sex appeal, the director has been forced to make the screenplay spicier. Vetrimaaran told us, 'This is a movie for the youth. I know what they expect from Dhanush. So I did the screenplay keeping that in consideration...'
Recently, the Pollathavan crew arranged for a photo shoot. There were two different sets of photos taken on that day. One set of photos with Dhanush has been delivered already. The other set of photographs containing some seductive poses of Poonam has been kept by the crew to be released at the pooja. The interesting buzz in the air is that, before Danush, she was approached by his 'arch rival' Simbu for his film, Kettavan. But knowing about the things that had happened to her co-star Nayantara, she categorically denied the offer. When she felt that the offer from Danush is a safer option, she immediately accepted it.
No wonder then that in future, she might even have a chance to play a role with his great 'in- law' too!
