If you have seen the impressive performance of actor Sreenath Bhasi as the young Dr. Abid in Aashiq Abu’s Virus, here is an interesting trivia.
The original choice to play the character was not Sreenath, but another young hero.
Wondering who that is? Aashiq had finalized actor Kalidas Jayaram to play the role but he opted out of the movie.
The official reason is that Kalidas was busy with his other projects like Mr & Ms Rowdy and Argentina Fans Kattoorkkadavu. Even if you are ready to believe that explanation, looking at the appreciation that Sreenath is receiving should make everyone feel that it was a costly miss for Kalidas.
