Dhanush in superhit Malayalam film remake; Nayanathara to feature in this remake of Bollywood’s blockbuster? Find out
Actress Nayanthara, the lady superstar of Kollywood was last seen in Superstar Rajnikanth’s Darbar. The movie starred Rajinikanth, Nivetha Thomas, Prateik Babbar, and Suniel Shetty among others. She is currently juggling many projects like Rajnikanth’s Annaatthe directed by Siva, Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal directed by Vignesh Shivan and Netrikann directed by Milind Rau. According to few latest reports, Nayanathara has been approached for the remake of recently released Bollywood hit ‘Thappad’. Thappad featured Taapsee Pannu in the lead role and was directed by Anubhav Sinha. Thappad is based around a strong female-centric theme, a story of Amrita(played by Taapsee) whose seemingly perfect life is shattered when her husband slaps her once in a party. What follows is an emotional turmoil that leads to her taking a stand loud and clear. Nayanthara has always bagged roles that revolve around a strong message, so it’s interesting to see if she will accept to star in Thappad remake.
Malayalam movie Ayyappanum Koshiyum, featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon in lead roles is directed by Sachy which was released in February. The movie was a blockbuster for both the audience and the critics leading to great reviews. After it’s success in Kerala, reports suggest that a Tamil remake is on the cards. The Tamil remake rights of Ayyappanum Koshiyum has been reportedly bought by Five Star groups Kathiresan, who has produced hit movies featuring Dhanush like Pollathavan and Aadukalam and Karthik Subbaraj’s Jigarthanda. According to many reports, the production house is in talks with Dhanush to sign him for the role played by Prithviraj in the remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Five-star Kathiresan had recently announced a movie starring Raghava Lawrence and is yet to confirm this speculation of the Tamil remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
