Ramba will replace Simran in the Kannada version of the Tamil
Pithamagan is being remade in Kannada starring Upendra in the
role of Vikram and Sangavi is playing the role in which Sangeetha
featured in the Tamil version.
In Tamil, ace director Bala cast Vikram in a novel manner, and
paved the way for the actor to win the National award for the first
time in his career. Uppi also believes that the film will bestow
him with a new image in his acting career.
However, for an item song in which Simran appears as an actress
abducted by Surya, the director has opted for Ramba. Originally the
director had planned to shoot the sequence with Simran, and the
actress also accepted to appear in the item number. But later he
dropped Simran and decided to go with Ramba.
Appearing in the screen as an actress is not new to Ramba. She
has already appeared in the same role in a Parthiban starrer Tamil
film 'Unnaruge Nanirinthal'.
