Sharwanand and director Sudheer Varma’s film was launched with much fanfare in December as the auspicious dates were running out.
At the time of launch, the team had announced that Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menon will play the heroines opposite Sharwanand, but now one heroine has opted out, and the other one is demanding more remuneration.
According to sources, Nithya Menon walked out of the movie before the regular shoot commenced as her role was not 'important' enough.
Seeing that the production house now requires a top heroine at any cost, Kajal Aggarwal is said to have started demanding high remuneration. Hence, the film’s regular shoot has been stalled for now.
If the deal with Kajal Aggarwal is done and another heroine replaces Nithya, the team may commence its shoot in the New Year.
Sharwanand is playing the role of a gangster in this action drama that will have stylish visuals and novel screenplay, say sources.
Meanwhile, Sharwanand has already started sporting his new look -- a full-bearded getup -- for the film.
