Jyothika out, Nithya Menen in Vijay’s next

Jyothika, who was said to be one of the three heroines in Vijay’s next movie directed by Atlee, said to be out of the project.

According to sources, she has been replaced by Nithya Menen. It is to be noted that Jyothika was replaced after she heard the narration, took an advance and also did a photo-shoot.

The yet-untiled film will have Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal, Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Kovai Sarala, Sathyan and SJ Suryah in pivotal characters.

The film’s producers Sri Thenandal Films have roped in AR Rahman to compose music and newcomer Vishnu will be handling cinematography.

Meanwhile, after two super hits Thuppakki and Kaththi, it seems the hit combo of Vijay and A R Murugadoss will come together for the 62nd film of the former.

When asked, Murugadoss reportedly said, “We are in a very early stage of discussion. Talks are going on but it is too early to discuss or reveal anything”.
