Looks like Idhu Namma Aalu is once again in the soup as according to the latest report Nayantara has refused to be a part of the movie anymore, leaving Simbu with no other option but to forward a formal complaint against her.
It is said that the Vaalu actor approached Tamil Film Producers Council and South Indian Film Artistes' Association (Nadigar Sangam) and filed a complaint against the chassy actress for not co-operating toward the completion of the film.
When Nayantara was asked to explain her action, she has reportedly said, "the dates I had initially allotted for the film was not utilized by the team. Right now I am busy with several other projects and hence cannot provide fresh call sheet for Idhu Namma Aalu".
With just one song sequence and a couple of scenes remaining to be shot, Nayantara's alleged refusal to complete the movie should come across as a huge matter of concern to Simbu and the whole team of Idhu Namma Aalu.
The film is being produced by T. Rajendar, Usha Rajendar, Silambarasan, Kuralarasan and Ilakiya under their home banner, Simbu Cine Arts. It is directed by the National Award winner Pandiraj of Pasanga fame.

It is also said that Nayantara has requested the Producers Council and Nadigar Sangam to try and make sure she gets the remaining of her salary as she had allotted the said dates.
T.R's Complaint Against Pandiraj
Earlier it was reported that Pandiraj had ridiculed TR's complaint against him, alleging that the director was responsible for the film's delay.
In response to TR's complaint, Pandiraj had said that the production team was not in a position to afford enough money for the team to go ahead with the shooting.
The Pasanga director had also claimed that the film's music director, Kuralarasan, failed to fabricate a song within the stipulated time causing further delays.
Friends To Foes?
Initially it was conceived that Simbu and Nayantara might stay as friends forever post their break up. But now it looks like the two are not on good terms.

With the entire project in the soup, it is to be seen what happens to Idhu Namma Aalu in the next few days. Will the makers convince Nayantara? Or will they somehow manage to go ahead with the shoot without the female lead? Stay tuned for further updates.
