Sonakshi Sinha the cute daughter of Sathrugan Sinha, the legendary Hindi actor was first considered to act in Rana alongside Rajini. But as Rajini felt a little awkward acting with his old friend’s daughter, the chance went to Deepika Padukone. Kamal made use this chance cleverly and opted to introduce the girl in this next venture “Viswaroopam“. The shooting dates were finalized and the heroine gave lots of interviews about how she is delighted to act with such a great personality like Kamal.
Sources say, the girl has walked out of the project now, due to a strained relationship with the team. Sonakshi Sinha told reporters in Mumbai, she is walking out of the “Viswaroopam” project because she is unable to allot the required dates for the project. Initially Selvaraghavan was called to direct the movie. But due to his marriage and ego clash with Kamal, he opted out of the project. Then, Kamal decided to direct the project himself. But he was not able to start the shooting on the first week of June according to the schedule. There was no information given to Sonakshi when the shooting is about to commence.
In the meantime, Sonakshi Sinha is one of the most sought after heroines in Indian film industry now. She has scheduled to act in “Rowdy Rathod” a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film along with “Viswaroopam”. So the actress feared, the delay in the projects shooting may affect the dates she had given to other films. She decided to opt out of the movie in the beginning stage without any hard feelings. She is said to have expressed her concerns personally to Kamal. Kamal understood her situation and promised to use her in his forthcoming films. The stars acted with utmost professionalism and look forward to working in other projects without any hard feelings, says Sonakshi’s representatives.
Kollywood sources give a completely different reason for Sonakshi Sinha’s walkout. It is said that Sonakshi signed the project believing she is the heroine of the film. But the team bought in Shreya Saran for the main role. Sonakshi has a small, but important role in the film. The actress was not happy about this change and decided to walk out of the project. The “Viswaroopam” team did not give any comments about the Sonakshi Sinha’s walk out from the project till date.
