Director Lingusamy is excited over the release of his much-awaited film Paiya. According to the director, the movie, which has Karthi and Tamannah as the lead pair, is a road film. Initially, Nayanthara was signed up to play Karthi’s pair but things did not work out and eventually she was replaced with Tamannah.
The director, in a recent interview to a national daily, recalls that what happened between the production house and Nayan was due to communication gap. The director was quoted as saying, “Things may not have worked out, but I’m still her fan.”
He said that Tamannah was zeroed in because he wanted an actress that could perform well throughout the movie.
