Initially Nayantara was signed for Paiya for a whopping remuneration of Rs 1 crore but later producer Subash Chandra bose requested her to reduce the amount due to global financial crisis and recent flops by Nayantara films.
But Nayantara didn't accept it and this forced producer to remove from the film and Tamannah replaced Nayantara in the film.
Producer Subash Chandra Bose then approached Tamil Film Producers Council alleging that Nayantara had not returned the advance paid to her. Then Nayantara was asked to refund the money by the council but nayantara failed to respond within the specified time.
The Tamil Film Producers' Council (TFPC) and the South Indian Artistes' Association (SIAA) finally issued a statement asking producers to refrain from working with Nayantara.
After two days the ban was canceled by TFPC as Nayantara returned the advance to Subash Chandrabose of Thriupati Bros Film Media Ltd.
