Shriya Saran replaces Trisha in ‘Hero’

The actor will get to star opposite Prithviraj for the second time

Last week, we had reported that Trisha Krishnan was all set to debut in Malayalam with Prithviraj’s Hero, to be directed by Deepan. Unfortunately for both Prithviraj and Trisha, there has been a change in plans.

Shriya Saran will now be Hero‘s heroine. Deepan has confirmed the news and has also revealed that Trisha had to be replaced due to call-sheet issues. This is Shriya’s third Malayalam film after the Mammootty –Prithviraj starrer Pokkiri Raja and Mohanlal’s soon-to-be-released Casanova. The film’s script is being written by Vinod Guruvayoor. Tamil actor Srikanth will play a negative role in the film. Shooting will begin in November.  As for Trisha, we guess Mollywood will have to wait some more time to catch her speaking Malayalam.
