Arya was to have done a Malayalam project with Mohanlal but has decided against it. The actor once again has preferred director Bala, who gave him a break in Naan Kadavul. The Sarvam star has decided to shift base from the Mohanlal project to that of Bala’s. Sources also say that Arya is keen to establish himself in Kollywood and hence decided on quitting the Malayalam project.
With Arya opting out, Mohanlal has recommended the Unnaipol Oruvan actor Ganesh Venkatraman for the role. It may be recalled that both Mohanlal and Ganesh Venkatraman were part of Kamal’s UPO.
