Simbu, the hero and creator of Tamil film Kettavan has been keeping silence over the replacement of actress Lekha Washington.
Few days before, almost the entire media published reports that Lekha Washington, one of the heroines of Kettavan has been replaced by Asin due to her poor performance. But later Lekha denied these reports and confirmed her role in Kettavan. A photo CD of Kettavan comprising pictures of Lekha with Simbu also circulated to media soon after the denial.
The actress says: "Still I'm the heroine of Kettavan and the reports about my replacement are totally wrong. I don't know the reason for such reports...'
However, when asked about this issue , Simbu said nothing about the heroine. He says: "This is a story of a common man who lost his life due to a girl. There are two heroines sharing the lead role. I will tell other details about the film later."
Kettavan is directed by Nandakumar with Simbu penning the script. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores the music.
