Former Miss World and Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai is likely to play one of the leads in Tamil remake of Andhadhun, which also marks actor Prashanth’s comeback in Kollywood. Earlier this year, Prashanth’s father and producer Thiagarajan announced that he will be bankrolling Tamil remake of Bollywood’s Andhadhun movie which will be directed by Mohan Raja.
The latest update is that Mohan Raja has opted out of the project due to reasons unknown. JJ Fredrick, who made his debut in Tamil industry with Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal, has been roped in as the director for the remake. Interestingly, we hear that Aishwarya Rai has been approached to play Tabu’s character for the remake. Aishwarya and Prashanth have earlier shared screen space in Shankar’s blockbuster Tamil film, Jeans, which released in 1998.
Though her casting is not finalized yet, the makers informed that they are in talks with the actress and will soon give an update regarding it. Veteran actor Karthik and comedian Yogi Babu were reportedly roped to play key roles in the film.
