Goutham Vasudeva Menon, one of the promising commercial
filmmakers in Kollywood, has been restarted the work of his mega
project Varanam Ayiram. The Surya starrer film was
postponed for a while due to Surya"s commitment to his other
project Vel. Now he will be return to Vaaranam Ayiram
sets. The director is decided to resume the shooting of the same.
But the director's heroine hunt is still continues.
Initially Goutham opted for Deepika Padukone but the she has
preferred to do King Khan Shahrukh Khan's film! He next approached
Asin but she had no free dates. Boys Genelia signed for
the lead a while later but later she had withdrawn from this
project due to a clash in her dates. According to the script, there
are two heroines in the movie. Boys Genelia has signed for
the second heroine"s role and she had attended the shooting of the
film, which was held abroad.
Now the director is almost settled with an actress for the main
lead. She is none other than Sameera Reddy, the Bollywood
bombshell. She will play the role of an NRI in this film. Sameera
flew to Chennai last week and had a discussion with the director.
According to the sources, Banu, the costume designer of the film
had a rehearsal with the actress on last Saturday and the actress
will be expected to attend the shooting of Vaaranam Ayiram, which
will commence in the US next week.
