Nayanthara plays as Vijay's lady love for the first time in her career. Though she appeared in an item number in Sivakasi along with the actor, she is yet to play as his lady in any of the films. Her name was considered for the lead role in Vijay's Kuruvi at the earlier stage. But suddenly Trisha came to her place.
Sources say that director Hari strongly feels that Nayan is the apt choice for the lead role in his story. AVM sources say that everything on the film might be cleared by the second week of February.
