Actress Lavanya Tripathi was approached to play the leading lady in the Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster film 100% Love. While things didn't work out for her, it proved to be quite an advantage for Hebah Patel, who is said to have now Okayed the project which is likely to mark her full-fledged Kollywood debut. She had earlier played a small role in Thirumanam Enum Nikkah.
"Her ability to portray the bubbly girl with ease alongside showing seriousness is the essence of the character which was essayed by Tamannaah in the original. The makers felt she would be a perfect fit," reveals a source. The film will star G.V. Prakash as the main lead, reprising the role of Naga Chai Tanya.
