There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Selvaraghavan and Dhanush’s Irandam Ulagam which originally had gorgeous Andrea Jeremiah in the lead. She has been replaced with Richa Gangopadhyay for professional reasons according to Dhanush. Others have insisted that it had something to do with a fallout between the director and his muse which resulted in the actress walking out.
Andrea has chosen to maintain a strict silence about this fiasco but sources close to her insist that she has been treated badly and that she could not possibly have walked out as that is not the sort of thing the powerful Nadigar Sangam and Producers Council will take lying down.
The singer/actress however is content to let her impressive body of work do the talking. Her twin careers of acting and singing are red hot right now, as she has bagged a meaty role in Ajith’s Mankatha and won two awards at the recent Vijay Music Awards for her exquisite voice. Moreover she is looking like a million bucks and is hugely in demand with topnotch producers and music directors making a beeline for her.
