Grapevine has it that Tapasee, who had allotted the dates for the shoots from June 25 to July 10 in Palani, wanted to reschedule the shoots, as she was leaving to Mumbai to promote her debut Hindi film Chashme Badhoor. But the movie bosses did not wish to change the plans at the last minute and conveyed the same to her.
The story does not end here, as Tapasee called Santhanam requesting him to give same dates in August in order to force the makers of the film to reschedule the shoots. However, the movie bosses were not happy with the development and decided to replace her with Varalakshmi. It is also said that director Sundar C was irked by the actress' unprofessional behaviour though he has denied to comment on the issue.
