Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Badla, a revenge drama, might soon get a Tamil remake, according to the industry grapevine. The Sujoy Ghosh directed thriller, based on the Spanish film The Invisible Guest, has opened to rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.
With the film doing exceptionally well at the box-office, reports have already emerged that a Tamil remake is in the pipeline and that it might star Trisha in the title role that was essayed by Taapsee Pannu. Apparently, Trisha watched the film over the weekend in a private screening and got very excited about the idea of starring in the remake. However, she is yet to officially give her nod.
It’s worth mentioning that Trisha has also been considered for the Tamil remake of Andhadhun, which is most likely to feature Siddharth in the lead. Ramya Krishnan is being considered for the role essayed by Tabu in the original. An update on Badla Tamil remake can be expected to be made in a few weeks. The makers are in the process of putting together the rest of the team.
Last seen as superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in Petta, Trisha is currently gearing up to commence work on action flick co-starring Simran. To be directed by Sumanth Radhakrishnan, the film is expected to feature some heavy-duty action. It will be really interesting to see both Trisha and Simran flex their muscles and display some action chops.
The regular shoot will commence from the first of April. Sumanth is in the process of finalising the rest of the cast. To be bankrolled by All In All Pictures, this will be the second production of the makers who had already produced upcoming Tamil heist comedy, Gorilla.
Trisha is waiting for the release of Garjanai and Sathuranga Vettai 2. She is also the part of several movies including 1818 and Paramapadham Vilayattu that are in different production stages. Directed by Rithun Sagar, 1818 is a bilingual made in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. The film is inspired by the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
