The distinction about Dhanush continues, and this time the one who got lucky is Alia Bhatt. Dhanush has a unique luck for his heroines - many a times, the heroines' first attempt to pair up with him fails, and they all get lucky in their second chance. This was observed with Kajal Aggarwal's role in Balaji Mohan's upcoming Dhanush starrer, while she was replaced by Divya Spandana in 'Pollathavan'; the rule applied to Amala Paul too, who was replaced by Shruthi Hassan in '3', but is now doing 'Vellai Illa Pattathari' with him now.
In the case of Alia, she was to have been the heroine in 'Anegan'; but she got second-time lucky with Dhanush, with director Vetrimaran announcing her as the heroine in his upcoming yet-to-be-titled Dhanush starrer. Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Ashrita Shetty of 'Udhayam NH4' fame would play the heroine in this Vetrimaran flick. Going by the trend, it looks like a second chance - a big one - is waiting for Ashrita.
