After Jyothika chose to pull out of Vijay 61, sources say that the makers have approached Nithya Menen for the role. To be directed by Atlee and produced by Sri Thenandal Movies, the movie has Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha playing heroines.
Buzz is that Jyothika choose to opt out of the project as she wanted some changes in the script and Atlee was keen not to make any such.
Nithya Menon, a popular name in south Indian films, has been narrated the story. Buzz is that she would join the sets of Vijay 61 soon. Remember Vijay and Atlee are joining hands after a huge hit in Theri recently.
