Podaa Podi, the much publicized film, for which Silambarasan and Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar were signed up, has been put in cold storage. Kollywood was abuzz with news when the film stills, featuring Silambarasan and Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar, made it to the newspapers. There were reports that the Podaa Podi team intended to fly down to Canada for shooting. However, over a certain period of time there was no news about this project.
Our enquiries in Kollwood revealed that Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar is not keen on the project and has declined outright to star with Silambarasan. With this Podaa Podi has been shelved. It is still not clear if there a plans to revive the project with another leading lady.
