A long time ago, Dulquer Salmaan had announced that he will be working on a Tamil film titled Vaan, directed by Ra Karthik. Producer Selva Kenanya, who had bankrolled Oru Naal Koothu was supposed to produce Vaan. The makers had also released the first-look poster of the film. However, it looks like Vaan has undergone a major change in terms of cast. Dulquer Salmaan has backed out of the film due to reasons best known to him. Now, director Ra Karthik has found a replacement in Ashok Selvan. The makers confirmed that Ashok Selvan will be playing the lead role in Vaan and shared more details regarding the film.
In the film, Ashok Selvan will have three heroines. Dulquer was supposed to share the screen space with Niveha Pethuraj, Kalyani Priyadarshan, and Kriti Kharbhanda. Now, they have been replaced by Ritu Varma, Aparna Balamurali, and Shivathmika Rajasekhar. Also, it is said that the film's title Vaa has been changed as well. The technical crew of the film consists of cinematographer George C Williams, composer Gopi Sundar and editor Anthony. The film's shooting and the rest of the cast and crew will be announced in the coming weeks. Ashok Selvan is riding on a high as his film Oh My Kadavule, which released in theatres in 2020, went on to do great business at the box office. His subsequent release Ninnila Ninnila, which released on OTT received a lukewarm response.
