Though according to grapevine, earlier Murugadoss was keen on roping Asin as the female lead but finally took the decision to cast Shruti with Surya. Since, producers are planning to make the film simultaneously in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil; they would rather prefer Shruti who is popular in Bollywood.
Shruti Haasan made her debut in Hindi film industry with Luck and shared screen space with Aamir Khan"s nephew Imran Khan. A.R. Murugadoss has already raked in critical appreciation as well as box-office moolah with Ghajini and Surya is making headlines in tabloids after Ram Gopal Varma signed him for crime-thriller Rakta Charitra.
