Kollywood director Atlee’s pan-India project starring Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara named ‘Lion’, is affected by Aryan Khan drug case. Filming of the movie commenced in September but it has now come to an hold after Aryan Khan’s arrest in the drug case. So South lady superstar Nayanthara was filming her scenes for the film with a body double of SRK. Reports says that Nayanthara is quitting Atlee’s film and she will be replaced by Samantha.
A source revealed that it is just a rumour .“All we can do is laugh about it…this is not true.” Nayanthara gave dates on October and the first half of November for Atlee’s film but it couldn’t be shot due to Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s drug case. The report says that she has shot for other projects lined up back-to-back which will ultimately make it difficult for her to find time for Atlee’s film.
