A few weeks ago, there were reports that Kiccha Sudeep had procured the Kannada remake rights of the Tamil blockbuster hit Pa Paandi. The news now is that Ambareesh will be reprising the role done by Raj Kiran in the movie. Titled as Ambi Ninag Vayasaithu, the film will be directed by Nanda Kishore.
Pa Paandi, a big hit in the Tamil film industry this year, also marked the directorial debut of the National award-winning actor and producer Dhanush, who also made a cameo appearance in the film. Reports are that Sudeep may also do a cameo in the Kannada version.
Ambareesh has been limiting himself to smaller roles in films in recent times due to health issues, but impressed with the script of Ambi Ninag Vayasaithu, he decided to don the greasepaint.
The veteran actor and politician is also busy playing Bhishma in the magnum opus Kurukshetra. The shooting of this film is currently on at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad where extravagant sets have been erected for the purpose. Kurukshetra is touted to be a Sankaranthi release.
With Ambreesh showing keen interest to star in the remake, producer Sudeep has some big plans for its promos. Sources say that plans are on to release 10 different teasers to capture the attention of the film buffs.
Director Nanda Kishore is currently busy directing Dhruva Sarja in Pogaru. The shooting of this film is expected to be wrapped up soon and the director will then move over to Ambi Ninag Vayassaithu.
Pa Paandi, directed and produced by Dhanush, has been co-written by director Subramania Siva. While Raj Kiran played the title role in the film, it also had Revathi, Madonna Sebastian, Dhanush, Prasanna and Chaya Singh in the star cast.
