Madhavan opts out of Chassni


Madhavan has suddenly opted out of the all-the-ladies-out tearjerker entitled Chassni (sugar gravy) which is Tamil director Revathy Sharma"s homage to the autumnal people.

As per the original cast, Madhavan was supposed to play Ayesha Takia"s supportive husband who encourages her to 'adopt" an abandoned mother (Jaya Bachchan). But now Madhavan, busy shuttling between Chennai and Mumbai, attending to various Tamil and Hindi projects, has said no to Chassni.

Apparently the long line- up of lady performers from Jaya Bachchan and Ayesha Takia to Raveena Tandon and Urvashi Sharma put Maddy off. He was left wondering what he would be doing in a ladies" picture.

However the actor gives another reason for opting out. “I loved the script. And I really wanted to act with Jayaji whom I admire a lot. But the producers were undecided about their dates till the last minute. And I had too many assignments. My priority right now is Rajkumar Hirani"s 3 Idiots."

Chassni has now begun shooting without a leading man. The director Revathy is desperately searching for a hero. But as one female member of the casts says sarcastically, “Once a film has so many ladies in the cast, a hero is as hard to find as mangoes in the desert."
