Actress Taapsee has confirmed that she has opted out of Madha Gaja Raja (MGR) owing to date issues. The actress announced that she has about three films in the pipeline at the moment and hence could not allot the call sheet required for MGR.
The film is directed by Sundar C with Vishal playing the lead role. It is a double heroine subject with Taapsee roped in for a role and the other heroine yet to be finalised. However, with the actress also walking out, the director is now scouting for two heroines.
The shooting of MGR began in Palani a couple of days ago, it may be mentioned here.
Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in Place of Taapsee
Sundar C is reported to have signed up Varalaxmi Sarathkumar to play Vishal’s arm candy in Madha Gaja Raja (MGR) after Taapsee walked out of the project citing date issues. The shooting of this film is in progress right now and with Taapsee calling it quits, the director was in a fix.
However, everything has been sorted out now and Varalaxmi has joined the star cast. Apart from her, there is a role for another heroine which Sundar C is yet to finalise. Varalaxmi will be making her debut in Poda Podi starring Simbu and MGR will be her second film most probably.
