Rumours are rife that Amala Paul has been offered to act opposite Dhanush in Sottaivazhakutty. After considering quite a few names, the makers of the film opted for the actress, who has given two hits recently in the form of Vettai and Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi. However, it is not sure whether she has given her nod to act opposite Dhanush or not.
It may be recalled that Amala Paul was supposed to work in 3 and she was also signed to act in the movie. But the actress was surprisingly dropped from the movie and replaced by Shruti Hassan. This incident reportedly had not gone well with the actress and in later interviews, she had expressed her unhappiness over it without naming anyone.
Sottaivazhakutty is said to be a romantic-comedy film to be produced by Kathiresan, who had earlier made Aadukalam. The forthcoming movie is directed by Sarkunam. The movie is expected to hit the floor in September 2012, after Dhanush wraps up his Bollywood debut movie Raanjhnaa.
