In place of her, Avika Gor acted as female lead in the film. She is making a comeback in Telugu after Ekkadikipothav Chinnavada.
Ashwin Babu, hero of the film, in an interview said that Tamanna liked the script and was ready to do the film. But she couldn’t give them give them enough dates at a stretch to complete the film, hence walked out.
Omkar, the producer and director of the film decided to go ahead with Avika as he wanted to not miss Dussehra-Diwali period which he deems best for his horror franchise.
His first film in the franchise, Raju Gari Gadhi became a huge hit during Dussehra but the second part even with Nagarjuna and Samantha, did not receive similar response.
Now, trailer suggested Kanchana style film and Tamanna said to have opted out because of being typecast as horror movie actress, it seems.
As she thought Sye Raa will give her some mileage as an actress, she did not want to get typecasted as horror lead and decided to look for other film opportunities that will have her in variety of roles, going forward.
