Director Mohan Raja who was directed Velaikkaran has been roped in for the Tamil remake of Bollywood Blockbuster Andhadhun.
Bankrolled by Thiyagarajan, the movie will star Prashant and the rest of the cast will be finalised soon.
“Almost every production house and star in our industry was trying to get the remake rights for this film. But I’ve been in talks with the Bollywood production house since its release because the script is a powerful one. Every time a star expressed interest, the rate shot up, but in the end, since I’ve a good rapport with the production house, having bought their Special 26 rights, I managed to get the rights for this film as well”, Thiyagarajan was quoted by Times of India.
Thiyagarajan also mentioned that this role will be a cakewalk for Prashant as he is already a pianist.
“Prashanth has passed grade 4 in piano at the Trinity College of London. We have a grand piano in our home, and he plays on it almost daily. This role is going to be a cakewalk for him,” he said.
Ramya Krishnan is currently in talks for the role of Tabu in the remake.
