It is learnt that Shriya Saran has been replaced by Isha Sharvani in Kamal Hassan’s upcoming film ‘Viswaroopam’.
As things stand now, Bollywood’s Sonakshi Sinha would be debuting in Tamil films as heroine opposite Kamal in the film, which would be directed by Kamal himself. ‘Viswaroopam’ would have music by the trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and would go to the floors by August.
Unit sources say that Shriya has been replaced by Isha Sharvani (fiancée of Indian pace spearhead Zaheer Khan) mainly because of her dancing prowess and not because of her amazingly pretty face. Shriya Saran, otherwise an excellent dancer, was said to be found wanting when it came to ‘Kathak’ dancing and it is reported that it was indeed a ‘painful’ decision made by Kamal to replace Shriya with Isha.
Isha has acted in few Hindi films. She is widely considered by many as the best dancer to have hit Bollywood after Madhuri Dixit.
