Some years back, Gautham Menon announced the launch of his film titled ‘Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikkalam’. The flick – a women-centric one, was to star actresses Trisha, Nikita and Aparna Pillai. Though the announcement was made with much fanfare, the film didn’t make much headway due to the commitments of the lead actresses as well as well as the director.
It was assumed that ‘Chennaiyil…’ has been abandoned for good. Trisha, however, begs to be different and insists that the film is on, as efforts have already been initiated from the director’s side to revive the movie. Nikita, who starred in films like ‘Kurumbu’, has fallen by the wayside in Tamil films while Aparna is on the road to entering marital bliss.
Wonder where the director would find two other actresses to replace Nikita and Aparna, should the film be revived. Trisha has said that the ‘difference of opinion’ which erupted between her and Menon after the latter replaced her with Amy Jackson as heroine in the Hindi version of ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’ has now been sorted out.
“There are certain reasons for me not starring in the Hindi version of VTV. However, I’m sure that as and when it is completed and released, ‘Chennaiyil..’ would be spoken about on the same lines of ‘VTV’ as it has got a powerful script,” says Trisha.
