It is well-known that Vikram and Boopathy Pandian have been in talks for an action-oriented film. The actor wanted some modifications in the script but as the director refused to do the changes, the movie has been shelved. However, he has decided to go ahead with Gopichand in the lead role and they have almost sealed the deal.
It may be recalled that this is the second instance of Boopathy Pandian's movie getting shelved in the recent tme. A few months ago, Shreya Reddy, wife of producer Vikram Reddy, had accused the director that he was unprofessional. It is because the filmmaker, who took the advance to direct Vishal Krishna's film, shelved the project without informing her about the status of the film and opted to make a film with Aarya.
Meanwhile, Vikram, who is basking the success of Deiva Thirumagal, is busy with Rajapattai and has signed AL Vijay's next project.
Gopichand has replaced Vikram in Boopathy Pandian's upcoming Tamil movie. The latter has opted out of the film due to some creative differences with the director, who has decided to cast the Telugu actor in the proposed project.
