Kiara Advani has also been roped in for this movie and her role is being touted as the lead role opposite to Ranveer, according to FilmiBeat. The actor has not made a confirmation about the same, but is likely to play the character of Nandhini, who is the love interest of Ambi. She was last seen in Indoo Ki Jawani and will be next seen in Shershaah.

The original film starred Vikram and Sadha in the leading roles. The plot of the film revolves around a man who suffers from a psychological disorder, working as a lawyer in the day and as a vigilante at night. Anniyan went on to win several awards, including eight Filmfare awards and six State Film awards, along with a National Award in the category of ‘special effects’. Interestingly, its Hindi dubbed version Aparichit also became one of the most telecasted films on Hindi TV channels and it also became one of the highest-grossing films in the south.
