Amy Jackson has said that AL Vijay suggested her name for the Hindi version of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. Gautham Menon finalized her after taking a few screen tests, recalls Amy. The actress could not expect more, as it is a tailor-made launch vehicle for her.
It may be recalled that Trisha Krishnan, who played the role of Jessie in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, was signed for Hindi version of the film. But later she walked out of the project citing date issues. However, Prateik Babbar is pairing Amy Jackson in the film.
