04 Aug Isha Koppikar was substituted by Jyothika after in Ajith’s film ‘Mugavaree’
Ajith-starrer ‘Mugavaree’ was a huge success at the box office, and the musical romantic drama got a positive response from the viewers. Since playing a short part in Ajith’s ‘Vaali,’ Jyothika acted in the film directed by VZ Durai in front of Ajith. Jyothika ‘s relationship with Ajith went well, and later prompted the pair to work together again. But did you learn that Isha Koppikar was substituted by Jyothika after just three days of filming for Ajith’s ‘Mugavaree’?
‘Mugavaree’ was the debut of producer VZ Durai, and he was really happy to mold the film well. VZ Durai specifically told the director PC Sreeram to hold the required frames as the following scenes were focused on it. Originally, VZ Durai began shooting with the supporting cast and the female leader Isha Koppikar. But after filming for the first three days, director VZ Durai thought that Isha Koppikar was not going to fit the role he wanted, and requested the producer for a change. Then Isha Koppikar was replaced by Jyothika, and she gave a phenomenal performance. Manager VZ Durai himself disclosed this in his recent interview with the renowned Tamil publication.
Next, Isha Koppikar plays a crucial role in the Sivakarthikeyan-starring ‘Ayalaan,’ and the science fiction drama is directed by Ravi Kumar. Rakul Preet is a female character, and the film is produced by 24 AM Studios in collaboration with KJR Studios. – Adapted from Times of India
