Fans who were eagerly waiting to watch actor Trisha in the Vikram-starrer Saamy 2 (Saamy Square) are in for disappointment. Trisha was to star opposite Vikram in the film, the sequel to the 2003 film Saamy, but has walked out of the project.
Tweeting that she had decided to opt out because of "creative differences", Trisha said that she wished the team good luck.

Directed by Hari, Saamy 2 stars Vikram, Keerthy Suresh, Prabhu, and Bobby Simha. Interestingly, if she'd done the film, Trisha would have been one of the very rare heroines to appear in a sequel produced nearly 15 years after the sequel. Usually, filmmakers replace the heroine with someone younger.
Saamy had Vikram play a cop, while Trisha played a Brahmin college student. The film went on to become a blockbuster. Trisha has not divulged what were the ‘creative differences’ over which she quit the film, but there is speculation in industry circles that it may be because Trisha did not find her role substantial enough.
Sequels tend to have a second heroine to give the audience something "fresh". For instance, the Singam series retained Anushka Shetty as Duraisingam's (Suriya) girlfriend/wife. But the two sequels in the series have each had another heroine – Hansika in the second and Shruti Haasan in the third. By the third film, Anushka barely had a handful of scenes. Saamy 2 features a second heroine in Keerthy Suresh.
For now, Saamy 2 is left without the energetic performer who gave us the memorable Kalyanamdhan Kattikittu dance in the first film.
