It is rumoured that not all is well between Arya and Nayantara, considered as one of the best on-screen pairs in Kollywood and who had been close friends for the past many years. If reports are to be believed, Nayantara has turned down Arya’s request to play a cameo in his upcoming film Inji Iduppazhagi opposite Anushka.
Stung by successive box-office failures in Yatchan and Vasuvum Saravanum Onna Padichavanga (he also produced this film), Arya is keen to make amends as he wants to ensure the success of his upcoming film Inji Iduppazhagi (to release simultaneously in Telugu as Size Zero) opposite Anushka, who has stolen the limelight in the film with her dedication to put on oodles of weight for her role already getting lauded by critics.
In a particular sequence in the film where Arya is shown to be dancing with a bevy of beauties, he invited his friends such as Hansika, Nayantara, Tamannaah and Kajal Aggarwal to appear for a few minutes. As it was a ‘guest role’ (sans any pay), all except Nayantara agreed to make the guest appearance after which Arya decided to shoot the song without his ‘friend’ Nayantara.
It may be recalled that Nayan had a casual meeting with Arya on the sets of Yatchan though she wasn’t part of the film. Nayan’s ‘no’ to Arya now appears to signal a split in their much-publicized relationship. It is also said that though Nayan is still friendly with Arya, she turned down the ‘guest role’ offer as it’s a film which has her tough competitor Anushka in the lead!
