Bollywood's exclusive fashion icon and the very glamorous Sonam Kapoor has decided to bow out of renowned director and filmmaker Mani Ratnam's upcoming Tamil film, Kadal. The film was supposed to mark her debut in Southern film industry. Interestingly, the flick will also be acting as the launch-pad for ace Tamil actor Karthik's son Gautham. 

According to the buzz, the role has now gone in the hands of Tamil-Telugu actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who has readily agreed to work opposite Gautam in the film. Samantha will soon also be seen in Bollywood with her debut flick Gautham Menon's Assi Nabbey Pure Sau.

Apparently, the reason for Sonam's last minute refusal of the film was the fact that she did not want to head to the South film industry at this point in her career. She wants to focus solely on her Bollywood career. However, her decision left Mani in a lurch as he already had his heart set on Sonam as the protagonist. He felt she would have portrayed the role of the innocent, yet sophisticated and vivacious girl perfectly! And this is how Samantha ended up with the envied lead role!

Here's hoping that Sonam made the best choice!

    Cmon I dont believe in this news. For the role opposite gautham, very young girls were considered... like kamal hassan's daughter akshara, radha's second daughter tulasi as gautham pair as gautham himself is very young...

    I dont think a director like mani ratnam will choose a lead who looks older than the hero ( for that particular role)...
    Infact maniratnam wanted to launch a new face and auditioned lots of girls...even though samantha is popular in telugu movies..she went through the auditions with other girls and got the role...

    waiting for the movie eagerly...
