According to reliable sources, Parul Yadav, who was to play the lead in Ravichandran’s Apoorva, has been shown the door. There were talks doing the rounds that Parul will be playing a 19-year-old in the upcoming movie about the relationship of a 60-year-old man and a young girl. 

When we contacted Parul, she said, “I was excited when I was picked up for the title role but according to Ravichandran, I am not supposed to talk about the movie and so I am tight lipped until they make the announcement. I was approached for the movie and they took an individual photo shoot. Now I have to just wait for their call. Meanwhile I have started shooting for my film, Shivajinagara, for which I am in Bangalore.”

However, confirming the rumours, Ravichandran said, “I felt that Parul will not fit into the role of Apoorva and so she will not be working for this project. The search is on and we will be making the announcement soon,” he said.

Parul was initially apprehensive about her role in the film, because of certain intimate scenes, but had later agreed. Probably, Ravichandran wasn't very confident about her being able to going through the scene. 

Ravichandran is currently working on three projects for his son Manoranjan. While Andhu has completed 15 per cent shoot, Apoorva and Avalu Avarisidalu are yet to take off.

Going by rumours, Jayamala’s daughter Soundarya was picked up by the director for Andhu but he is yet to confirm. “I have selected a few heroines for Andhu and will be zeroing in on one soon. She will be from the current young lot of Kannada industry. As for Avalu Avarisidalu, I will finalise, once I start with the project,” he added.
