Did Nayanthara said 'NO' to Shah Rukh Khan due to Prabhu Deva? Here's the truth
Actress Nayanthara once rejected big-budget movie Chennai Express with Shah Rukh Khan, here is the reason for her to do so
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty approached Tamil superstar Nayanthara for an item number in Shah Rukh Khan's film years ago
The lady superstar Nayanthara refused to do the item song in the film Chennai Express. Before this, Nayanthara had received many offers to work in Bollywood, but she rejected for one or the other reason.
Nayanthara said no to Chennai Express for two big reasons. First, Nayan was not willing to do an item number.
And the other reason is that the song was being choreographed by her ex-lover Prabhu Deva's brother Raju Sundaram.
Reports were there that she was not pleased to work with Sundaram. Hence, she chose to turn down the offer politely.
Later, another popular actress Priyamani was approached for the song '1 2 3 4', and it became a big success. The film featured Deepika Padukone as the female lead. The film was a blockbuster at the box office and was loved in the south as well.
