Will Vada Chennai without Samantha get done this year?
The process of making Vada Chennai has been long in the making with so many things happening that one’s head spins. Vada Chennai is an upcoming Tamil gangster film written and directed by Vetrimaran. It was to originally feature Dhanush in the lead with Vijay Sethupathi, Amala Paul and Andrea Jeremiah in other roles. However once work started people were seen to be constantly moving in and out of the project. Finally it was confirmed to feature Samantha and Dhanush but just when everything was going along well we get a bombshell announcement saying that Samantha has also opted out of the project. That happened right after she announced her engagement to the Telugu star Naga Chaitanya. So it was naturally assumed that the engagement was responsible for Samantha to opt out to the movie but that was not so because right after that Samantha signed up to do a movie with Sivakarthikeyan. This film to be directed by Ponram has been confirmed by the producers as well as Samantha herself. Her role will be very similar the heroines her earlier films where she is a city bred girl.
