Amy Jackson was approached by the makers of forthcoming Tamil movie I to play the female lead in the movie. But it was not sure whether she had given a green signal for the movie, as the actress was not in India. However, we hear that a few days ago she has signed the movie, which stars Vikram in the lead.
A leading daily reports that Amy Jackson, who was in the US when the offer came her way, was recently in Chennai to attend a film event. During her visit, the actress met Shankar and finished the formalities. Though there is not any official announcement about her association with the movie, it has been confirmed by sources that Amy has given a nod to the project.
The buzz also says that Amy Jackson and Vikram took part in the photoshoots of I on Sunday (July 8). The project is likely to take off on July 15. It may be recalled that Samantha was the first choice to play the female lead in I, but the actress opted out of the film due to health reasons that made the makers of the film to find a replacement for her.
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.
