SJ Suryah had directed lots of excellent films before, but ever since he became an actor too, he has ended up with an image of Adult-ish filmmaker. His new film is Vyapaari with three heroines- Tamannah, Namitha and Malavika.
The director was planning to shoot a bathing scene with Suryah and Malavika. It was supposed to be part of a song sequence. When Malavika arrived and had a look at the costume that she was supposed to wear, she was stunned.
She refused point-blank to wear the dress. Ever since she got engaged to be married, the actress is even more careful about cleaning up her onscreen image. For a while it looked as if shooting might come to a standstill.
Namitha then came forward to star in the scene!
