Is Vijay out of Shankar's 3 Idiots?

While Vijay is seriously concentrating in his next film Velayudham, Kollywood woke up today (04-Dec-2010) to a rude shock of a news claiming that Ilaya Thalapathi has walked out of ‘3-Idiots’ remake.

Kollywood grapevine is abuzz that Ilayathalapathy Vijay has walked out of Shankar's 3 Idiots remake!

Sources say the contentious issues were a few. One is that Vijay did not approve some costumes recommended by the director for the character. As per sources the bone of contention between the director and actor was over Vijay's look in the film. A source close to the development said: "Vijay did not approve of the clothes or the way Shankar wanted him to go for a new hair style for the film".

The more serious one is that Shankar wanted Vijay to sport a particular hairstyle and the actor refused to do so stating that the continuity of ‘Velayudham’ will be affected if he goes for a new hair style. The shooting of ‘Velayudham’ is still going on.

Unconfirmed reports have it that Shankar and Vijay had difference of opinion over various issues. Now that things have gone beyond redemption the director and the actor may part as friends and wait for another right opportunity in the future to work together.

The official line will be "the star could not adjust his dates". Meanwhile Shankar and GFC has reportedly started a hunt for a new hero to replace Vijay.
