Samantha, who is basking in the glory of the super hit film Dookudu co-starring Mahesh Babu, had a rude shock when ace director Mani Ratnam rejected her for his forthcoming romantic comedy film which will launch Gautam, son of veteran Tamil actor Karthik.
Samantha had gone through a photo-shoot and screen test with cinematographer Rajiv Menon and after seeing the results, Mani Ratnam sent word to Samantha that she would not fit the role of leading lady for his film. Sources say that the ‘Ye Maaya Cheseve’ actress is deeply disappointed.
The director is said to be auditioning a few new faces also for the lead role.
