Vishal had ousted Shruthi Hassan from his film and has brought in Lakshmi Menon. Vishal and Shruthi Haasan are pairing in the film Poojai.
The film which is being directed by Hari is in final stages. After this, Vishal will be donning the lead role in the film to be directed by Suseenthiran.
t was earlier decided to cast Shruthi Haasan in the female lead role. All of a sudden, the director has made a change. He has casted Lakshmi Menon in the female lead role instead of Shruthi Haasan.
Lakshmi Menon has already paired with Vishal in Pandiya Nadu and Naan Sigappu Manithan. There is also a good chemistry between them. There were also rumours that both are in love.
There is also a calculation that all these factors will be a great plus to them. Initially Vishal had paired with Lakshmi Menon in the film Pandiya Nadu. This film was directed by Suseenthiran.
It has been mentioned that Suseenthiran had felt that since the film Pandiya Nadu was a hit, he had decided to cast the same pair sentimentally.
When asked Vishal about this, he said, “ It is true. The heroine has lesser portions in the film. Apart from this unit members feel that it would be better if Lakshmi Menon is cast in the female lead role.”
