Actress Nithya Menen has replaced Pranitha Subhash opposite stylish star Allu Arjun in his upcoming Telugu movie. Reports suggest that the Pranitha walked out of the project after she had an argument with director Trivikram Srinivas on the sets of the movie.
“Trivikram had conceptualised how Pranitha was supposed to look like in front of the camera for a certain scene. But that day, when Pranitha walked on to the sets, her look was nothing like what Trivikram had imagined. He lost his cool on the sets,” The Times of India quoted a source from the team as saying.
This led a difference between Pranitha and the director over her role, which forced the actress to opt out of the film. “The incident, coupled with differences in character perception, led to her walk out,” added the source.
The actress was reportedly upset over the director’s harsh behaviour. “Trivikram yelled at Pranitha on the sets. It did not go down well with her, more so because the incident happened in front of the whole crew. A furious, Pranitha decided to walk out forcing the makers to look for a replacement subsequently,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Allu Arjun will be seen romancing three heroines in this untitled movie. Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Adah Sharma and Nithya Menen have been roped in for the female lead roles in the film. Initially, Pranitha even attended the film’s shooting for a couple of days.
The actress had earlier worked with Trivikram in Pawan Kalyan’s “Attarintiki Daredi”, which became the all time blockbuster at the box office. Interestingly, the director himself had selected her for the movie as he considered her a lucky charm.
