Lingusamy's 'Paiya' is still hanging in the line waiting for the right heroine as Nayantara is officially not in the movie. Names of other popular heroines were considered including some debutants in Kollywood. Yet, the makers were adamant to bring in an actress who is par with the former heroine's star status.
Media speculations stated that Trisha has been roped in to play but she denied it saying that no one has approached her for the role. Karthi will be acting in 'Paiya' once he completes the schedules for Selvaraghavan's 'Aayirathil Oruvan'. Latest update is Tamanna has been bought in to enact the female lead. Being the thriving star in Tamil cinema, she's being touted as the best heroine to fill up Nayantara's place.
Tamanna who is quite busy in Tamil and Telugu has somehow managed to sign up for 'Paiya'. Her upcoming movies include 'Ayan', 'Anandha Thandavam', 'Padikathavan' in Tamil and 'Koncham Ishtam Koncham Kastam' in Telugu.
Meanwhile Lingusamy home production (Thirupathy Brothers) is reportedly busy with release works of their home production 'Patallam' starring Nadhiya in the lead role amongst debutant boys.
As the rising issue has been put to an end with Tamanna's arrival, 'Paiya' might take off eventually at the earliest.
