With the digital platforms screening films from different languages, the Indian audience have been exploring the content crossing the borders. With subtitles available, they are getting access to a wide variety of films. Hence remakes did not work in the recent times. Young actor Nithiin has been quite confident on Andhadhun remake and he himself acquired the remake rights of the film. The film will be directed by Merlapaka Gandhi and it will start rolling early next year.
Nithiin seems to be taking a huge risk with the project. The film will be shot lavishly in Pondicherry and Nithiin is in the hunt for two top actresses for the crucial roles. It is speculated that Nayanthara was approached and she quoted Rs 9 crores to reprise the role of Tabu. This is huge and Nithiin seems to be ok with Nayanthara’s quote. The makers are also in the hunt for a top actress to romance Nithiin. These seem to be a huge burden and Tollywood audience already watched Andhadhun several times which is available in several streaming platforms. Hence, Nithiin is taking a huge risk. We have to wait and see if Nithiin succeeds.
