The latter is making her Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan-Atlee project
Nayanthara and Shraddha Srinath
Director Yuvaraj Dhayalan, known for Tenaliraman and Eli, both which had Vadivelu in the lead, was supposed to do a project with Nayanthara. The untitled movie has been bankrolled by SR Prabhu's Dream Warrior Pictures. However, according to a report in TOI, the actress has decided to opt out of the project owing to date issues.
According to the report, what resulted in an unanticipated date clash for the actress is the delay in shooting of her ongoing Bollywood project with Shah Rukh Khan, which is being directed by Atlee.
The yet-to-be-titled Yuvaraj film had gone on floors a while ago without the scenes involving Nayanthara as they were expecting that she would return soon after wrapping up the Hindi movie. But they did not foresee the delay of the Atlee project and checked with Nayan if she could join the Tamil film soon.
Since she expressed her difficulty in joining the movie anytime soon, the makers had no option but to find another actress to play the lead role. Shraddha Srinath will now be playing the role in the movie, which revolves around the lives of three couples.
Shraddha, who opened this year with Madhavan's Maara (streaming on Amazon Prime Video), was last seen in Vishal's Chakra. She has the bilingual Kaliyugam, a female-centric thriller set in 2050, in her kitty.
On the other hand, Nayanthara, who was seen recently in Rajinikanth's Annaatthe, has the much-expected Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal, which will hit the screens this December. Chiranjeevi's Godfather and Prithviraj's Gold are other upcoming projects of hers which will release next year in Telugu and Malayalam respectively.
