Payya is a Tamil movie starring Karthi and Tamannaah. Nayanthara was initially considered for the lead role in the 2010 film. However, the film’s director N Lingusamy has now revealed that Tamannaah will be the heroine later. Karthi and Payya are coming to the cinema during the shooting of the movie Aayirathil Oruvan.
Nayanthara was initially cast in the road movie. When they rejected the demand for a reduction in remuneration, Tamannaah was cast as the heroine. Aadavan is a movie starring Nayanthara who left Payya. After the filming of Payya was over, his friends objected and the climax of the film, which was shot at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore, was completely skipped and another was shot.
The music of Yuvanshankar Raja was also a highlight of the film. All the songs in the film like Enkathal Solla Neramillai and Atada Mazhada became hits among the audience. The film also stars Milind Soman, Sonia Deepti, and Yogi Babu in lead roles.
