Sumanth takes over a film launched with Rajasekhar as hero

Just a few days ago, the official announcement of senior Hero Rajshekhar doing a movie came out. His wife Jeevitha and Rajshekhar also posed to the camera during the movie event. Tamil critic turned producer Dhananjay is bankrolling this project under the direction of Pradeep Krishnamurthy of 'Bethaludu' fame.

On a shocking note, the makers have now replaced Rajshekar with Sumanth. The makers haven't even made any official announcement regarding it but have recently launched the same film with Sumanth. The producer and director are still the same. The only difference is that Sumanth is playing the lead role instead of Rajasekhar.
The movie is going to be the remake of the Kannada super hit film Kavaludaari. Sumanth is going to appear in a fit look for this character in the film.
Digging more into the details, we have come to know that the director and producer have jointly taken this decision to go ahead with Sumanth instead of Rajasekhar as the senior hero's market is not viable. They thought that Sumanth can be a perfect choice for the remake and launched the movie with the hero.
We have to see if Rajasekhar or Jeevitha has anything to say about it.
