Priyamani Parthiban

Why did Bharathiraja reject Parthiban and Priyamani?

Priyamani Parthiban

Ace director Bharathiraja launched his latest directorial venture Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum recently in Theni. The star-studded event was attended by ace directors such as K. Balachander, Balumahendra and Maniratnam. Even before the film was officially launched, Bharathiraja had do deal with problems aplenty.

Bharathiraja’s first choice Parthiban, who was to play the hero in the film, was replaced at the very last minute. In fact, much to the surprise of many in the industry, Bharathiraja roped in director-actor Ameer saying that the latter looked ‘younger’ than the former to play the role he had visualized in the film. On his part, Parthiban simply said that he could not comment on this.

Parthiban decided not to take the issue to the Producers’ Council or the Nadigar Sangam apparently due to Bharathiraja’s stature as one of the senior-most directors in action. However, Bharathiraja’s decision to opt for Iniya instead of Priyamani, the original choice, still needs lot of explanation. In fact, Priyamani was introduced in films by Bharathiraja in his Kangalal Kaidhu Sei many years back.

The national-award winning actress was quite hopeful of making an impression in Tamil with this film and felt heart-wrecked when she heard that she had been replaced by a rank newcomer Iniya. Bharathiraja took the decision to replace Priyamani with Iniya after attending the audio launch of Iniya’s Sargunam-directed Vaagai Sooda Vaa. The director was reportedly impressed by Iniya’s performance show on the trailer screened at the venue.

When Bharathiraja called Priyamani to inform her of the decision to replace her, the latter got to know of it and reportedly avoided talking to him.

Aren’t we unlucky as we have probably missed out watching a blouse-less Priyamani on-screen?

    atleast parthiban could have carried the movie for the 1st week collections .. braja is too headstrong ..I wish good luck for the movie – may be its designed at awards and not box office

    All ok.What’s with the last part of this article??-Aren’t we unlucky as we have probably missed out watching a blouse-less Priyamani on-screen?-oya,big deal! common…there is much more in a movie than to check out whether the heroine wears a blouse or not.This seems to be a period film and so women are shown blouseless bec that’s they way they used to be…Those who so call consider themselves “unlucky”,priyamani has given ample skin shows in many films…you can go and check out those…

    A man of noble origin would never degrade a lady as you have done that too in a public forum like this…So this apparently shows your standards…I can’t stoop to your level..It is a disgrace for me to comment at you…This will be my first and last comment to you…As ur filthy brain suggests,you will humiliate me further after this…i know…everyone knows but i don’t give a rats ass!!!!!!!!!Kosuvukku bayandhukitu odi oliyura vamsathuley naan porakaley.

    Tomorrow,someone may comment like this to your sister/wife/friend/daughter…At that time,don’t go barking at them…bec you have also done the same….Show this comment of yours to your parents…they will be proud of having you as their son.

    Hi original smile…Though it was fake smile tat liked my comment, its my duty here to support u on wat u said against soola k.That asshole used filthy language attacking mothers too when others don’t do that.He very well knows what words he used.On top of that, he claims to be a psychologist.Yes some of us use some bad words( no holds barred) but never to the extend of insulting mothers in that way.I think that asshole had gone tru child abuse.
    The bottom line is soola karupan is a silly asshole.

    @David Billa..Thanks for ur support..Psychologist??My foot!!A true Psychologist is one who respects others.He/She requires a high level of tolerance/patience as in this field you,are required to deal with people,their minds and behaviours.He/She needs to think before they talk.When you have no control over ur own mind,whose mind do you want to control??You don’t even have basic respect for a woman and go around abusing for no rhyme or reason,why the hell call yourself a Psychologist??It is a shame to those who brought glory to this field.

    Anyways,David,i think its best we just leave this guy alone.Our comment to him is like throwing a stone on dirt which will eventually come back to ignore..And to whoever are disgusted by SK comments,don’t bother.ignore..
