A few months back, it was officially announced that Ashok Selvan and Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren fame Niharika Konidela will star together for an upcoming romantic comedy, directed by debutant Swathini. The news created a good buzz on social media and seemed like an interesting project to watch out for. However, it has now been revealed that Niharika Konidela will no longer be a part of the film. Yes! She has opted out of the project due to her personal commitments. Niharika recently got engaged to the love of her life, JV Chaitanya and the engagement pictures went viral on social media. The couple is said to be getting married in December, this year and hence she has decided to step out of the film. The makers are reportedly planning to go on floors from the month of October.

Interestingly, the young and happening Megha Akash has replaced Niharika and will romance Ashok Selvan in this youthful entertainer. Megha Akash rose to fame after playing the female lead in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota and there has been no lookback since then. Megha is turning out to be one of the important young talents in Tamil cinema and let us hope that this new project gives her a good breakthrough. Talking about the film, Megha Akash says, “Being a part of films that own unique scripts and give more space for female characters is always bliss for any heroines. And to get such offers isn’t an easy thing. When Swathini narrated the script and my role, I could instantly get into its shoes feeling its soul. I am super-excited to be a part of this project and can’t wait for the shooting to take off next month.

Reportedly, Megha Akash will be seen playing a tango dancer and the film will revolve around the relationship between her and Ashok Selvan, who plays a cinematographer. This comedy drama is produced by Selva Kumar of Kenanya Films and has music scored by Leon James. On the technical side, this untitled film will have cinematography by AR Soorya and editing by Richard Kevin. The film’s shooting is planned to begin from the last week of October with all precautionary measures taken. Ashok Selvan’s last outing, Oh My Kadavule was a super hit at the box office and the young actor will be looking forward to continuing the success streak with this new film as well.
