Samyuktha walks out of Karthik Subbaraj film..

The actress was subjected to online trolling over her choice

Published: 16th May 2017

With Karthik Subbaraj's project with Dhanush temporarily shelved, the Iraivi director is all set to direct Prabhudheva for his next. While it was earlier speculated that dancer-turned-actress Samyuktha Hegde, who made heads turn with her debut Kannada film Kirik Party, would be playing the female lead in the film, it's now known that she has opted to let the project go. 

The backlash she faced online from trolls for choosing the Tamil project over the Kannada film Kaleej Kumar is said to be the main reason for her dropping the film. Samyuktha took to her official Facebook page and said, "Kannada is my mother tongue and I respect it immensely. My first preference is always Kannada. Before judging please learn the truth and understand the situation. Everything you see and hear on TV isn't true. I've made no offensive statements."

As of now, it's unclear who will be replacing Samyuktha in this yet-to-be-titled film.
