Ritika Singh of Irudhi Suttru and Aandavan Kattalai fame was supposed to play the female lead in Vijay Sethupathi’s upcoming film with Renigunda director Paneerselvam. Now sources say that Ritika Singh is likely to be replaced by Vijay Sethupathi's Rekka heroine, Lakshmi Menon and the final negotiations are happening.
The yet-untitled action thriller will be bankrolled by AM Ratnam and Vijay Sethupathi’s close friend, Bobby Simha will be seen as the baddie. Imman has been roped in to compose music for the film and director Paneerselvam is planning to complete the entire shoot in one long schedule.
After completing Paneerselvam's film, Vijay Sethupathi will start shooting for ’99’ with Trisha Krishnan.
