G.V Prakash Kumar's Pencil movie has already made a huge buzz in K'Town. The interesting first look posters of GV and Sri Divya were appreciated by critics and fans. Sources have now conjured up a interesting take on why Priya Anand was replaced by Sri Divya.
Fans would be well aware that it was Priya Anand who was originally initially cast alongside GV, Due to unavailability of call-sheet, the actress pulled out. This was initial story that came out. However sources now reveal that it was not due to unavailability of call-sheet but it was an issue in regard to Priya Anand's salary.
Sources add until Vanakkam Chennai, Priya Anand was not too keen on Salary issues, But post-Vanakkam Chennai, the actress has considerably raised her salary and demanded 40 lakhs to star in Pencil. When the makers refused, the actress simply said no to the movie. It was at this point did the makers sign Sri Divya for a much less salary.
