Call it Sivakarthikeyan’s spin on Kamal Haasan’s Avvai Shanmugi, but the actor’s upcoming film Remo, has created quite a buzz to keep the anticipation high. When the teaser of the film was launched, revealing Siva’s nurse getup, his fans went into a state of frenzy. It has to be noted that he happens to be the only Tamil actor after Kamal Haasan to be seen playing a female role extensively in a mainstream film.
It has been learnt from reliable sources that 60 per cent of Remo will feature Sivakarthikeyan playing a nurse. Apparently, 15 different getups were tried on the Rajini Murugan actor before finalizing on the nurse look. It has also been revealed that Siva had to shed 10 kg to play the nurse’s part to the tee, and then regain weight to play him in the remaining portion of the film. He has even dubbed in his own voice for the nurse’s role.
The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander, and the makers have locked the audio launch date to be September 5. Already three single tracks which were released have captured the attention of music buffs in a big way.
Produced by 24 Am Studios, the film is gearing up for release on October 7. It is directed by debutant Bhagyaraj Kannan.
