We were told that the shooting for Shankar’s remake of the Bollywood movie 3 Idiots has been postponed because of heavy rains.
Read on to know what’s happening behind the scenes as there is more to it than what meets the eye.
December 6th was fixed as the date for the shooting for both Tamil and Telugu versions of the movie. However the star cast had an unpleasant surprise waiting for Shankar as 2 of them have planned to move out of the movie for their own reasons .
We earlier revealed Vijay’s distaste for Shankars choice of costumes and hairstyle for the movie.
Now, close sources have informed us, the Telugu actor Mahesh Babu, who was chosen for the lead role in the Telugu version, has walked away from the project too.
Adding to the already delayed progress of the shooting.
Secondly, as disclosed earlier Mahesh Babu had a disliking for the preference given to Tamil actors in the Telugu version of the movie. However, Shankar had previously ignored the request , overruling his suggestion he signed Jeeva and Arya maintaining they are popular Kollywood stars.
A close industry insider also tells us that Mahesh Babu who prior to signing Shankar’s movie has committed his dates for Sreenu Vaitla’s ‘Dookudu’ and is finding it difficult to manage time working for Shankar’s mega project.
After both the actors have deserted Shankar mid way,according to recent updates the buzz is that Surya or Ajith may be considered for the lead role. Keeping in mind Surya’s attachment with the Agaram foundation.
Well we have to wait for Shankar’s next move . The director surely seems caught in a cobweb of controversies .Good luck Shankar.
