Sriram Raghavan’s AndhaDhun starring Ayushmann Khurrana was not just a commercially successful film but also reviewed favourably by the critics.
Ideas of remaking the film have been circulating for quite some time now. Dhanush has approached the makers of the film to acquire rights for a remake.
According to a BOI report, Dhanush is keen on remaking the film in Tamil. He is in the process of buying the rights to the film that he wants to produce.
In an interview, quoted by BOI, Dhanush stated “It’s a brilliant film and we have already started the process of acquiring the rights. It’s one of those thrillers which I wouldn’t mind remaking in Tamil.”
While Dhanush will be producing the film, as to who will play the titular character in it, no one knows. Once the deal is finalized more will be revealed about the cast.
On the work front, Dhanush’s international debut The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir will hit theatres on June 21, 2019. He is also working on Vetrimaaran’s film, Asuran and an untitled film with Kodi director Durai Senthilkumar.
Dhanush also announced his return to Hindi films on the trailer launch of The Extraordinary journey of The Fakir in Mumbai, a couple of days ago.
He confirmed there that he will be teaming up with Aanand L Rai for the next Hindi film and the announcement will be made soon.
