Mohan Raja, who is well-known for making hit remakes, is all set to remake yet another hit Bollywood movie. Mohan Raja is working on the Tamil version of the 2019 hit film Andhadhun. According to a report in a leading daily, actor Ramya Krishnan is being approached for Tabu's role in the Tamil remake. Official confirmation of the same is yet to be made.
Ramya Krishnan is known for her role as Shivagami in the Baahubali series. She also played the role of Shakti Seshadri in the TV series Queen, which is loosely based on the life of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. The makers of the Tamil Andhadhun are very keen to have Ramya on board but the actor is, reportedly, yet to sign the deal.
While Ramya might be playing the role of Tabu in the movie, the report confirms that Prashanth will play the character portrayed by Ayushmann in the Hindi original. Prashanth was last seen in the movie Vinaya Vidheya Rama which was released in the year 2019.
The rights of the film have been obtained by Prashanth's father and filmmaker-actor Thiagarajan. Thiagarajan had said in an interview with a leading newspaper that almost every production house wanted to get the remake rights of the film, but he managed to get it.
A source shared with the daily that Mohan Raja is working on the final draft of the film. The cast might be revealed soon by the makers. The shoot is also said to start in the coming days.
Prashanth was a part of the Tamil remake of the movie Johnny Gaddar. The movie was named Johnny. It was directed by Sriram Raghavan, the director of the Hindi Andhadhun. The report also claims that there were rumours that Siddharth and Dhanush were also interested in featuring in the Tamil remake.
