Dhanush has reportedly replaced Vicky Kaushal in Bejoy Nambiar’s remake of the 1988 hit Tamil film Agni Natchathiram after Vicky Kaushal quit.

Raanjhanaa star Dhanush may have replaced Vicky Kaushal in Bejoy Nambiar’s remake of the 1988 hit Tamil film Agni Natchathiram.

A report in Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying, “Vicky has walked out of the film citing date issues, but there were reports that it because he was unhappy with the actress who they were thinking of casting opposite him.”

“But basically it will be filmed from August to October in Mumbai as the makers want to shoot during the monsoons and Vicky has already committed his dates to another film during this period and hence had no option but to drop out of the film,” it added.
