Catherine replaced Poonam Kaur in Thriller

Why did B. Unnikrishnan sack model and multilingual actress Poonam Kaur (of Souryam, Vinayakudu and Unnaipol Oruvan fame) from his forthcoming Prithviraj starrer Thriller even after shooting a few scenes?

Here is the reason! “Poonam’s poor performance disappointed us. Her dialogue delivery and performance were very weak. She was not willing to learn and proved to be a pretty face who just couldn’t act. After two days of shooting, Poonam was asked to pack her bags and leave,” director B. Unnikrishnan said to a leading website. Poonam was later replaced by Kannada actress Catherine.

Thriller, produced by Sabu K. Cherian under the banner of Aanandha Bhairavi, will hit screens on November 17. The film has Prithviraj playing the role of DCP Niranjan who investigates a murder mystery. Music is by Bharani K. Dharan and lyrics by Harinarayanan.
