It has been confirmed that Shruti Hariharan has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Ambi Ning Vayassaytho and according to reports she will be seen as the younger version of veteran actor Suhasini Mani Ratnam.
The lady would be joining the sets of the film in a couple of weeks and would be shooting with the team for a fortnight. This schedule will also have Kiccha Sudeep joining the team as he plays the younger version of Ambareesh.
Ambi Ning Vayassaytho is the remake of the Tamil smash hit film Pa Paandi, which had Raj Kiran and Revathi in the lead roles with the National Award winning actor Dhanush making a cameo appearance. Incidentally, Dhanush had made his directorial debut with Pa Paandi apart from playing the younger version of Raj Kiran.
Produced jointly by Kiccha Sudeep under his banner Kiccha Creations and Jack Manju under the KSK Showreel Productions banner, Ambi Ning Vayassaytho has veteran actor Ambareesh in the lead role and he will be reprising the character done by Raj Kiran in the original.
The film is directed by Gurudatta Ganiga and the technical crew includes Arjun Janya for music and Jebin Jacob for cinematography while Kiran will be taking charge at the editing table. Sudeep had penned the screenplay for the film.
Expectations on Ambi Ning Vayassaytho are too high as it is a comeback venture for Ambareesh as he plays the lead role after a couple of years. His last film release was in 2016 with the Puneeth Rajkumar starrer Doddmane Hudga.
Besides Ambi Ning Vayassaytho, Ambareesh also has Kurukshetra in his kitty in which he plays Bhishma. The film is in the final stages of making and is likely to hit the silver screens next month.
