If the grapevine is anything to go by, the team of Vijay 61, is searching for an appropriate replacement for Jyothika. According to sources, Jyothika had asked Atlee to make a few changes to her character, and it’s not clear if he agreed to that or not.
Rumours are rife that she’s already out of the project. On the other hand, reports suggest that Atlee has approached Asin for the role. If the team ropes her in for Vijay 61, this will be the fourth time she is cast opposite Ilayathalapathy after Sivakasi (2005), Pokkiri (2007) and Kaavalan (2011). However, official confirmation is awaited.
Produced by Sri Thenandal Films, the film has Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal, SJ Suryah and Sathyaraj in important roles. AR Rahman is the music director and Vijayendra Prasad has penned the story.
