Rumours are doing rounds in Kollywood that Vikram who was to play the title role of Raja Raja Chola in Maniratnam’s ‘Ponniyin Selvan’, is likely to be replaced by Surya.
It appears that Surya got in touch with Maniratnam, with whom he had earlier done ‘Aaydha Ezhuthu’, and expressed his wish to play the role the for which ace director had Vikram in his mind.
Mani is now said to be having second thoughts about casting Vikram as their trilingual ‘Raavan’ faced colossal failure last year. Sources close to the director say that he now feels that it’s too early for him to re-align with Vikram again.
This might just make him change his mind and sign up Surya for the title role, it is strongly rumoured, considering the fact that Surya enjoys huge popularity in Andhra as well.
