Actor Indrans, known for his comic characters, is playing the male lead in R Sarath’s forthcoming film Budhdhan Chirikkunnu, which is said to be based on the life of legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin.
Now the social networking sites were abuzz with stories where it was said that two actresses, Asha Sarath and Lakshmi Gopalaswamy, had refused to play the heroine in the film, opposite Indrans.
The story that appeared in the media goes like this. After Asha Sarath refused to accept the role, allegedly saying that it will affect her image, Lakshmi Gopalaswamy agreed to do the role and backed out at the last minute as she had thought that it was Indrajith who was playing the lead!
Director R Sarath has clarified that the whole issue has blown out of proportion. According to him, Asha Sarath had to opt out due to certain family engagements and Lakshmi Gopalaswamy was busy with her already committed dance shows.
