Days after reports came in that KV Anand’s next film has been firmed up with Vijay Sethupathi, the grapevine in Kollywood has it that Jiiva is upset by the decision since KV Anand had promised to feature him as the lead protagonist in the project.
Sources say KV Anand has been narrating scripts to various actors and Vijay Sethupathi already gave his in-principle nod and asked KV Anand to wait for him until he completes Aandavan Kattalai with director Manikandan.
Jiiva, who had earlier worked with KV Anand in Ko, seemed to have felt let down since he was not informed at all that he was replaced. Sources say KV Anand decided not to work with Jiiva since he has been reeling to churn out a hit at the box office since a long time. His recent film Pokkiri Raja too tanked at the box office.
