Filmmaker Radha Mohan has just wrapped up work on Jyothika's Kaatrin Mozhi, Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu, and it's slated for theatrical release on October 18. Earlier this week, news emerged that Radha Mohan has joined hands with Prakash Raj, Vikram Prabhu and Samuthirakani for 60 Vayadhu Maaniram, Tamil remake of Kannada film Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu.

Kalaipuli S Thanu has produced the project and the team has quietly wrapped up shooting and the project and is ready for release. The film's story follows the search for a missing father by his son and the events that follow.

Talking about the project, Radha Mohan told TNM: "Thanu sir brought this project and when I saw the original, I wanted to do it. I didn't worry about the fact that I'd be doing two remakes in succession. It wasn't planned that way and it's sheer coincidence that both these films are remakes."

The entire shoot of the film was wrapped up in 36 days in and around Chennai. The interesting part is that nobody had a clue about such a project being made until it was announced by the makers earlier this week. "We shot in stealth mode. Honestly, we don't know how the news about the film didn't leak out. It wasn't like we were shooting in some remote village. We were shooting in Chennai and nobody knew about the project."

Another highlight of the project is that it has music by maestro Illayaraja. For Mohan, it was a matter of pride to work with the veteran composer. "As an assistant director, I'd worked with him on a few projects. As a director, this is the first time and I consider myself extremely lucky. I was stunned by his effortless composition. He even sang a song for us in the album." If everything goes as planned, the film will hit the screens this month.
