Grapevine has it that Samantha has opted out of Shankar’s I. It was announced just a few days ago that the lady would play the female lead in this film opposite Vikram and this news comes as a shocker now. I is a mega budget film with some top names like PC Sriram and AR Rahman involved in the project.
It is worth mentioning here that Samantha had walked out of Mani Ratnam’s Kadal citing date issues and now follows Shankar’s I.
Though this is unconfirmed news, sources say that Samantha’s dates are in real mess owing to actress falling sick some days ago. More details on ‘if and why’ Samantha opted out of I will be out only through an official announcement.
