If reports are to be believed, Richa Gangopadhyay was the first choice for the second fiddle and director Vishnuvardhan wanted the Osthi actress to play the important role. The actress recently came to Chennai from Mumbai to discuss about the project. It is also said that she impressed Vishnu with her new toned look and the role demanded it too.
But what happened next was completely a surprising development. Tapasee enters the scene from nowhere, thereby spoiling Richa Gangopadhyay's dreams to act alongside Ajith Kumar. Well, it is said that the Aadukalam girl's PR exercise brought her in to the upcoming Tamil film produced by AM Rathnam.
