The director has reportedly decided to drop the project as he is not finding the suitable actor for the lead roles. First, he signed Mahesh Babu and Vijay for the lead roles in Telugu and Tamil respectively. Later, they both walked out of the projects due to date issues. Then there were speculations that Surya was roped in to play the lead roles in both the versions.
However, neither Surya nor Shankar has confirmed the news about the proposed project. The director, who regularly updates about the latest happenings of his films, has also not updated about 3 Rascals-Moovar, which has made the gossip mongers to believe that the movie has been dropped.
