Rumours floating in Kollywood say that Shruti Haasan, the actress who is on the move in Kollywood, Tollywood and Bollywood, has taken yet another giant step towards stardom in Tamil films by signing up as Ajith’s heroine in his uncoming film replacing Samantha.
Yennai Arindhaal, Ajith’s latest film by Gautham Menon which has the likes of Anushka, Trisha and Arun Vijay, has been doing very well and is in its second week in theatres now. Ajith is taking a break now amid rumours that his next film would be directed by Siva, who directed his last year’s hit film Veeram. It was rumoured that Siva would cast his favourite heroine Tamannaah in the new film opposite Ajith.
However, it was reported that Samantha was under consideration to be signed up as Ajith’s heroine in the film. Samantha, who had a mixed bag last year with her Anjaan opposite Suriya failing to click at the box-office and Kaththi opposite Vijay becoming a hit film, is presently starring opposite Vikram in Vijay Milton’s 10 Enradhukulla.
It now turns out that it won’t be Samantha but the multi-faceted Shruti Haasan who would be pairing up opposite Ajith in Siva’s new untitled venture. It may be noted that Shruti plays one of the two heroines opposite Vijay in Chimbu Deven’s Puli.
