Filmmaker Boopathy Pandian was supposed to direct Vikram in the movie ‘Vedi’ that was to be produced by Mohan Natarajan. When everything was ready to take off, the project was cancelled due to some creative difference of opinions. Lately in time, Boopathy Pandian announced that he will be making the same film with Vishal in lead role. Produced by Vishal’s home banner GK Film Corporation, the film was rechristened as ‘Pattathu Yaanai’. Since Vishal started shooting for his next movie produced under the home banner of GK Films Corporation.
The film is directed by Prabhu Deva with Sameera Reddy performing female lead role. Producer Vikram Krishna and Shreya Reddy requested Boopathy Pandian that the film can be started once Vishal completes the shooting of his present project. But all of sudden Boopathy Pandian started working with the same script signing Arya in lead role. Much infuriated with Boopathy Pandian’s gesture, she has asked Boopathy Pandian to pay back the advance amount.
