Nithya Menen who was last seen in Vikram’s Iru Mugan in Tamil has replaced Jyothika in Vijay 61 which went on floors few days back. Sources say Nithya Menen will join the team this week and start shooting for the project. The reason behind Jyothika’s exit is anybody’s guess.
Directed by Atlee and produced by Sri Thenandal Films, Vijay 61 stars Vijay, Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles. SJ Suryah, Sathyaraj, Sathyan and Vadivelu form the supporting cast. AR Rahman composes music for the project.
