Atharvaa is said to have recommended to the director of his new film to cast Priya Anand as one of the two heroines in the film.
After delivering successive hit films such as Chandi Veeran, Eetti and Kanithan in the past couple of years, Atharvaa has become one of the busiest actor in Kollywood. He has as many as five films in various stages of shoot. They are: Semma Bodha Aagatha, Rukkumani Vandi Varudhu, Gemini Ganeshanum Suruli Raajanum, Imaikkaa Nodigal and Othaikku Othai.
Directed by debutant director Barnesh, Othaikku Othai has two heroines. Vidya Pradeep (of Pasanga 2 fame) has been roped in one of the two heroines and the crew was holding discussions as to whom to opt for as the second heroine. When the discussions were on, Atharaa reportedly recommended to Barnesh to cast Priya Anand (his co-star in Irumbu Kuthirai) as the second heroine in the film.
Barnesh has agreed to Atharvaa’s suggestion and it is said that Atharvaa, who is said to be in love with Priya Anand, made only the obvious recommendation!
