Taapsee out of Madha Gaja Raja (MGR), Varalaxmi steps in!

Well, Taapsee and Anjali had been finalized for Sundar C’s next movie with Vishal tentatively titled Madha Gaja Raja (MGR). Though Taapsee had tweeted she had date issues and had to opt out, the latest buzz is that she has been replaced in the project with Varalaxmi.

According to a source in the unit, Taapsee had been signed on and even allotted dates from June 25 to July 10 for the shoot in Palani. The actress then, apparently, wanted a few days off in the first week of July to promote her Hindi flick, Chashme Badhoor.

“People from her team told the filmmakers that she would not board the flight unless she was given a few days off,” alleges the source, adding, “How can any artist do this once the schedule has been set with everyone?”

And what’s worse, the source adds, is that the actress also apparently called comedian Santhanam and asked him to allot the same dates as her in August so that she alone won’t be held responsible for any schedule change.

“This is completely unethical and unprofessional behaviour on her part. Is she using Tamil cinema as a stop-gap arrangement to make it big in Bollywood?” the source states.

When we contacted director Sundar, he refused to comment on anything except saying, “Yes, Anjali and Varalaxmi are part of my film.”
