Has Vedhika Been Removed From Bala’S Film?
When svelte actress Vedhika was selected by Bala the National Award-winning filmmaker from Kollywood for his film ‘Paradesi’ opposite Atharva, much was expected from her. Later, Bala is reported to have replaced her with Pooja — his heroine of ‘Naan Kadavul’ for a vital role. The news that Vedhika was out of his project and that too, after a schedule was shot with her, came as a surprise to many. The buzz was that the director was not happy with the way her portions have shaped up and hence considering either to cut down her role, or remove her footage altogether. When Vedhika was contacted, she rubbished it as baseless rumours. “I don’t know who spreads such gossip. I am very much part of the film” she clarified. About her experience of working with him, she says, “Anyone would give an arm and a leg to act in a Bala directed film.” And was she not intimidated by the presence of another actress in the movie? She replies, “Everyone knows how Bala chisels out each and every character. I know I play the lead and I am soon to join the second schedule,” she asserts. The actress was overjoyed about receiving the Nandi Award for her performance in the Tollywood film ‘Vaanam’ recently.
