Now that 3, Aishwarya Dhanush’s directorial debut featuring her husband has been launched, the focus shifts to its casting. As it has been announced already, Dhanush will be pairing up with Amal Paul in this project.
When asked about this casting decision, Aishwarya said that her favorite actor right from childhood had been her dad Rajnikanth, and now it is Dhanush who has captured her imagination. So, she wrote the entire story of 3 with Dhanush in mind. When asked about the heroine, she said that the first and original choice for the role was Shruthi Haasan. She said that the role suited Shruthi so much that she was unable to think of anyone else to fill that spot. But, as luck would have it, Shruthi was unable to find dates for this film and the offer landed in Amala Paul’s lap.
That’s the way things go in filmdom with date issues and all. Anyhow, we wish the 3 team all the success.
