Director Karthik Subbaraj, in his recent interaction with a YouTube channel, revealed that he approached Sivakarthikeyan to do the role played by Siddharth for “Jigarthanda”. However, the “Remo” actor rejected the film after suggesting Karthick Subbaraj to change Bobby Simha. The actor wanted the filmmaker to cast some other big star in the role of Simha but opted himself out from the project after Karthik refused to do so.

The plot of “Jigarthanda” revolved around an ageing gangster and an aspiring filmmaker who wants to make a film out of his life story. With Bobby Simha playing “Assault Sedhu”, pan Indian actor Siddharth played as “Karthick”, an aspiring filmmaker from “Naalaiya Iyakkunar”.

The racy screenplay of the film gained Karthick Subbaraj accolades from all over the country and Bobby Simha won national award in “Best supporting actor” category for the role he played in “Jigarthanda” which is considered as a cult classic among Tamil fans.

“Siddharth was the first choice to do the role. Producer asked me to tell the story to Sivakarthikeyan. At that time, his “Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga” was released. His “Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam” didn’t release at that time. He was at the shooting spot VVS” Karthik said in the interaction with Krishna for film companion South.

“He liked the story but the film having more scope for the villain made him reluctant. He felt some big star, someone like Sathyaraj sir would be apt for the role. But i fixed Bobby Simha in my mind already. So we couldn’t collaborate for that project” said the filmmaker.
