Mani Ratnam rejects Samantha

Mani Ratnam rejects SamanthaThe Dookudu star could not impress ace film-maker in the screen test despite rocking T-town with hits like Ye Maaya Cheseve and Dookudu, teen diva Samantha may still be feeling down. Film-maker Mani Ratnam has refused to sign her as the female lead opposite debutant Gautam, son of veteran Tamil actor Karthik, in his upcoming romantic comedy.
Samantha had even done some screen tests for him. “She took time out and went for a couple of days to cinematographer Rajiv Menon’s Chennai office for screen tests,” says an industry source. The likes of Kaartika and kin of Suhasini have also in the past failed Mani Ratnam’s screen tests. She need not be too upset as she’s already proved her mettle at the box office. Though we can’t help but wonder who is going to finally get the role.
