The buzz in the industry says that Amy Jackson is one of the contenders to play the female lead in I. The makers of the film have short-listed a few names and Amy's name is prominent among them. It is said that a call from Shankar's office has been made but nothing has been finalised yet. On the other end, Amy is currently filming her other movie Thaandavam, which is also a Vikram starrer film.
Recently, Samantha, who had agreed to pair up with Vikram in I, walked out of the film due to her ill health and returned her advance amount to Aascar Ravichandran. However, it has to be noted that the actress has also lost Mani Ratnam's Kadal for the same reason.
I is a romantic-thriller, which has AR Rahman's music, PC Sriram's cinematography, also features Santhanam, Malayalam actor Suresh Gopi, Ramkumar (Nadigar Thilakam Sivaji Ganesan's eldest son) and others. It is produced by Aascar Ravichandran.
