Over the months, news about Lingusamy wielding megaphone for Silambarasan’s film had kept everyone awaited for the official launch of this project. Regrettably, Boopathy Pandian walked out of project and later Lingusamy accepted to direct the film himself. On the spur of moment, everything seems to surprising as the filmmaker is signed by Cloud Nine Productions for a film with Vijay.
Says Silambarasan: ‘I was shell shocked to read reports in the media that Lingusamy has sacked me! How can he expect me to wait for more than 100 days without a proper script or dates of shoot? I had told him that I will be free from September 1, after 15 days shoot of Poda Podi in London which has already been fixed. But he jumped the gun and announces that I have been replaced by another actor! This is totally unprofessional and not done.’
