Chennai, April 23 (IANS) Television actress Pallavi Subhash, who is currently shooting for Tamil romantic-drama "Atcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada", has replaced actress Sonam Bajwa to make her Kannada debut in yet-untitled 25th film of superstar Puneeth Rajkumar.
Pallavi is known for her television serials "Karam Apna Apna" and "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat".
"Sonam was initially signed as the heroine, but when she landed in Bangalore for the test shoot, I felt she didn't suit the role. Moreover, she's taller than I anticipated and was struggling to emote in Kannada. Hence, we had to replace her with Pallavi," the film's director Saravanan told IANS.
Pallavi had already given her test shoot.
"I had watched a few ads of Pallavi. I felt she'd be perfect for the role, and when we brought for test shoot, she didn't disappoint us," he said.
