Chandini Tamilarasan, the ‘Tamil’ actress who is determined to make it big in Tamil films at least in 2017, is paired up opposite Harish in an upcoming film titled as Raja Ranguski, replacing Pooja Devariya who was the original choice as the heroine.
It turns out that Pooja’s sudden illness (details are awaited) has caused the makers to opt for the Sidhu Plus Two heroine Chandini instead of Pooja. It may be recalled that Samantha missed out in starring in Shankar’s I as well as Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani as she had some skin-allergy issues at that time. Both the films went to different heroines but thankfully, Samantha’s stardom was hardly affected by this.
Pooja, who paired up opposite Vijay Sethupathi in last year’s Iraivi and had starred with him in Aandavan Kattalai as well, was to play the heroine in Dharani Dharan’s next film (the director of Burma and Jackson Durai) which has Harish as the heroine. Pooja, who was chosen to play the lead role, took ill and after waiting for a few days for her to recover, the crew has replaced her with Chandini.
It turns out that Dharani Dharan wants to launch and complete the project at the earliest so as to release it in April during Tamil New year. As such, the crew couldn’t wait till Pooja recovered and chose Chandini!
