After essaying the female lead in Veeram, actress
Tamannaah has not had any projects in Kollywood under her belt.
Realizing this, director Lingusamy who had directed the actress
earlier in Paiyaa came to her rescue by offering her the
female lead in Sivakarthikeyan's upcoming flick Rajini Murugan
which is being produced by the Anjaan director.
But all that was changed when the film crew started fishing out
for a new female lead for Rajini Murugan and finally
decided to cast Keerthi Suresh, daughter of yesteryear Malayalam
Tamannaah has finally decided to break her silence, expressing
her disappointment for being rejected by the production house. The
actress has admitted that she was indeed shocked upon hearing the
news. " Giving my dates to act alongside a budding actor like
Sivakarthikeyan is itself a big thing but now, after having
approached me for call sheet, the producer's have opted for a new
heroine" says Tamannaah.
A little bird from Kollywood says that the production house made
its decision to opt for a different actress, due to Tamannaah's low
market value at the moment. If the actress is being sidelined for
films like Rajini Murugan opposite Sivakarthikeyan
directed by Ponram of Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam's
fame, then her participation in future projects like Boss
Engira Bhaskaran-2 opposite Arya might be a question mark as
well, says the source.
