was to have done a Malayalam project
with Mohanlal but has decided against
it. The actor once again has preferred
director Bala, who gave him a break
in Naan Kadavul. The Sarvam star has
decided to shift base from the Mohanlal
project to that of Bala’s. Sources
also say that Arya is keen to establish
himself in Kollywood and hence decided
on quitting the Malayalam project.
With Arya opting out, Mohanlal
has recommended the Unnaipol Oruvan
actor Ganesh Venkatraman for the
role. It may be recalled that both
Mohanlal and Ganesh Venkatraman
were part of Kamal’s UPO.
