While Taapsee was finally seen playing Irene in the film directed by Vetrimaaran, actress Shriya Saran and Trisha were first choices for the role. Actress Shriya Saran was signed on for the project in February 2008 but eventually pulled out citing schedule conflicts.
Later in 2009, when the film was all set to be resumed, actress Trisha was roped in and had even shot for the film before she also pulled out of the film, due to schedule clashes with director Gautham Menon’s ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa’. Now the stills of Trisha and Dhanush in ‘Aadukalam’ are going viral on the internet.
Meanwhile on the work front, Trisha is currently part of the much awaited ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ directed by Mani Ratnam. She also has ‘Garjanai’, ‘Sathuranga Vettai 2’ and ‘Raangi’ all completed ready to release.
