Bharathiraja sents Mallu heroine`s packing !
In a rather curious grapevine from Kollywood , the shooting for the new Bharathiraja film ‘Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum’ is on a halt due to very different reason. The on lookers are saying that it was due to the presence of two Malayalee actresses- Karthika and Iniya, that the senior director has called the pack up earlier than usual. It is cited that when the Mullaiperiyar issue has gone out of proportions, Bharathiraja who has always stood for Tamil cause felt it unfair to continue shooting his movies with two Kerala heroines. But sources close to Bharathiraja says that the director is not thinking on these lines and that the shot was called off only due to the reason that the first schedule for the movie is already completed and that the call sheet problems of its lead artists has delayed the further shoot.
Anyhow, Bharathiraja together with Cheran, lyricist Thamarai and politicians Vaiko were seen in the front line of the protest in Chennai’s Marina beach yesterday, demanding that the dam be protected.
