Ever since ‘Chandramukhi 2’ was announced, there were speculations that the role made memorable by Jyotika in the first part would be performed by Simran in the sequel.
Adding spice to the buzz, Jyotika herself had said during a media interaction that she would like to recommend Simran for the second part, since the actress was hugely talented.
However now, clearing the air on the issue, Simran has denied replacing Jyotika in ‘Chandramukhi 2’. “It is a fake news I am sorry to disappoint my fans wanted to clarify I have not been approached for any such role for a movie,” she posted on her social media page.
The ‘Panchathanthiram’ and ‘Thullatha Manamum Thullum’ actress added: “I kindly request you all to plz get it right before publishing it on any platform. Thank you.”
It may be recalled that Simran was initially roped in for ‘Chandramukhi’ but she suddenly became pregnant and backed out. Following that, Jyothika was signed for the movie and it became one of the important milestones in her career.
Currently, works are going on for ‘Chandramukhi 2’, with Raghavendra Lawrence playing the lead role. Director P Vasu, who is helming the sequel as well, said in an interaction that sequel will be based on the characters of Vettaiyan (played by superstar Rajinikanth) and Chandramukhi from the original.
