Aishwarya Rajesh replaces Trisha in Saamy Square!
Shoot for Vikram’s Saamy Square is currently in the final stages. The movie directed by Hari is the sequel of the superhit cop thriller Saamy, which was released in 2003. Saamy Square was first announced with Keerthy Suresh and Trisha as the two female leads. However, the latter opted out citing creative differences with the director. Ever since then, the makers have been on the look for a replacement for Trisha. Finally, the makers have roped in Aishwarya Rajesh to play the role.
Producer Shibu Thameens confirmed Aishwarya’s casting by tweeting,
“Happy to announce that the most performing, promising, and the busiest actress @aishu_dil joining #SaamySquare and shoot on progress”
Aishwarya Rajesh is well known for her performances in films like Rummy, Kakka Muttai and Dharma Durai. She is currently part of some big projects like Vada Chennai, Lakshmi and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. Saamy Square is her second film with Vikram, as she is also sharing screen space with him in Dhruva Natchathiram. In Saamy Square, she has a lengthy cameo role with a song and some emotional scenes, which are integral to the movie’s plot.
If reports are to be believed, Saamy Square has Vikram playing a dual role, as Aarusaamy and his son, who is also a cop. National award winner Bobby Simha plays the antagonist. From the promos, Saamy Square looks like an usual Hari film with the regular mass masala formula. Prabhu, Delhi Ganesh, John Vijay, Soori and Imman Annachi are also part of the movie’s supporting cast.
Shibu Thameens, who also produced Vikram’s Irumugan, is funding Saamy Square under the banner of Thameens Films. The movie is expected to hit screens by the end of this year.
