Shriya toeing Trisha?

Yes, it was Shriya who bagged the role to star opposite the superstar in the movie of the decade - Sivaji - and Trisha didn´t. But Shriya, who shared the screen space with Trisha in the Tamil film Enakku 20 Unakku 18, is by all means a big fan of Trisha.
When Shriya was offered Trisha´s role in the Telugu blockbuster Varsham, for the Tamil remake, she immediately grabbed it up like a piece of hot cake. And why not? She liked Trisha´s role in it after all. It´s old story that the actress went on to star with Jeyam Ravi and the movie was titled Mazhai.

Now, nearly after two years, Shriya is all set to act in Sangeeth Sivan´s Hindi movie titled Ek - The Power of One, opposite Bobby Deol. The movie is a remake of Trivikram Srinivas´s Telugu movie Athadu, starring Mahesh Babu and Trisha.

This is the second time Shriya has been roped in to play Trisha´s role. Another interesting trivia: Nana Patekar, in the Hindi remake of Anthapuram, acted in the character made popular by Prakash Raj. He will now play the role of a CBI officer who trails behind the hero in Ek. It is to be noted that Prakash Raj played that role in the original version. Coincidence? May-be.
