There were reports that Hansika Motwani would be the second female lead in Silambarasan's upcoming Tamil movie "Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan" aka "AAA." But director Adhik Ravichandran has denied the reports.

In an interview, the director has said that he has not roped in Hansika Motwani and the hunt for the second female lead is still on. He has assured that the actress will be finalised before the commencement of the next schedule of the shooting.

Shriya Saran is signed to play the main female lead in "AAA." She is romancing Simbu for the first time on-screen and she will be paired up with the aged character played by Silambarasan, who will be seen in triple roles in the upcoming Tamil flick.

In the past couple of days, rumours were rife that former couple Hansika Motwani and Simbu were coming together for a film. It may be recalled that they had fallen in love during the making of "Vaalu," which took over three years to hit the screens, but they parted ways before the flick hit the screens.

Well, the news of Hansika Motwani and Silambarasan did not come as a surprise as Simbu and Nayanthara, who were also dating in late 2000s, kept their personal issues aside and teamed up for "Idhu Namma Aalu."

Coming back to "AAA," the first schedule of the shooting was completed on Tuesday, July 26. Adhik Ravichandran announced the news on Twitter and posted: "Schedule1 wrapped up. thank u @iam_str anna bcz of ur hardwork&dedication we completed it,in this speed #AAAsirappu. [sic]"

The team will kick-start the next schedule in the next few weeks. The film has Yuvan Shankar Raja's music, Krishnan Vasant's cinematography and Ruben's editing.
