A couple of years ago, Rajnikanth played the title role in Polladhavan. It was an action-packed flick. But the new version of Polladhavan would be totally different. Polladhavan is about a youth and his aspirations. Hero turns violent after all his attempts to realize his dreams fail, says Vettrimaran.

Poonam Bajwa was initially cast as Dhanush’s lady love on Polladhavan. Later Kajal Agarwal replaced her. Now the buzz is that Divya aka ‘Kuthu’ Ramya has replaced her.
