Shah Rukh Khan’s first collaboration with Atlee, titled Lion, has hit a roadblock. The superstar who was busy with his upcoming films has taken a break from work after NCB arrested his son, Aryan Khan in drugs on cruise case. Now as per reports in IndiaGlitz.com, though the makers have commenced the shoot with the rest of the cast, the movie’s leading lady Nayanthara has decided to step down. This sudden change was made by the actress as she allotted dates in October for this flick, and rescheduling of these dates will affect the rest of the films as well.
The publication carried, “SRK is unable to join the shoot because his son is in jail. Nayanthara had allotted these very dates in October and she is not in a position to rejig her call sheets after the shoot got delayed. This is when director Atlee suggested that 'Majili' and 'Shaakuntalam' actress Samantha be drafted in.” So will Samanth Ruth Prabhu bag a role opposite SRK? The film already stars Priyamani in the flick and if Samantha comes on board for this PAN- India film, it will lit up the screens for sure.
As of now, there is no confirmation from the actress Samantha and makers as per reports in the media.
Nayanthara had kept October and the first half of November for this Atlee’s next starring Shah Rukh Khan. ALSO READ: Teaser Of Shah Rukh Khan And Nayanthara-Starrer Action Thriller To Be Unveiled On August 15, Report Says
