A few weeks ago, it looked like the long innings of Trisha in Kollywood was coming to an end. Her lone release this year, Sarvvam, received a pretty lukewarm response at the BO.
Not to forget that young girls like Tamannaah and Kajal Aggarwal were also breathing down her back. Trisha only had Gautham Menon’s Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa with Simbu in Tamil. After being the queen bee of south Indian cinema, she was recently in the news for being cast opposite Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in Khatta Meeta, directed by Priyadarshan.
Now, sources in the industry say that Trisha is the front runner to be Kamal Haasan’s heroine in an untitled film, directed by K S Ravikumar and produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin, who is also said to be playing a parallel role in the film. When contacted, Trisha refused to comment as she was yet to sign the film, which is likely to start rolling early next year.
After playing the lead to some of the biggest names in south Indian films like Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu, Venkatesh, Vijay, Ajith and Suriya, Trisha is being paired with the Ulaganayagan for the first time.
Sources close to her say, “It will be a dream come true for Trisha. She had earlier canned a few scenes with Kamal for Marmayogi, which was subsequently put on the backburner.”
Trade analysts say that it is a fantastic comeback for the actress that could put her right back at the top. Veteran trade analyst Krishnan says, “In Kollywood, the shelf life of a top heroine these days is only three to five years. Trisha will get another chance to bounce back to the top if she signs the film with Kamal. Now, 2010 looks like a shootout between T & T (Tamannaah vs Trisha).”
