Actor Dhanush, who was blown away by Ayushmann Khurrana’s Andhadhun, had recently revealed that he’s keen to acquire the film’s remake rights and that he has already initiated talks. However, according to a Times of India report, actor Thiyagarajan has acquired the remake rights and the film will be made in Tamil with his son actor Prashant. 

It’s worth mentioning that Prashant was last seen in Johnny, a Tamil remake of Johnny Gaddar. This will be the second Sriram Raghavan film that will feature Prashant, and his father has revealed that the shoot will begin very soon.

“Almost every production house and star in our industry was trying to get the remake rights for this film. But I’ve been in talks with the Bollywood production house since its release because the script is a powerful one. Every time a star expressed interest, the rate shot up, but in the end, since I’ve a good rapport with the production house, having bought their Special 26 rights, I managed to get the rights for this film as well, Thiyagarajan was quoted as saying by the Times of India

While Prashant will play the lead, the rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon. The team is yet to finalise a director as well. Thiyagarajan went on to add that Prashant will be perfect for the role because he’s a pianist in real life as well. “Prashanth has passed grade 4 in piano at the Trinity College of London. We have a grand piano in our home, and he plays on it almost daily. This role is going to be a cakewalk for him,” he said.

Meanwhile, Prashant will work on another film that will star Anukreethy, who won the Miss India 2018 title. The yet-untitled project will be directed by A. Venkatesh, and it will go on the floors soon.
