Sources say that Puneet Rajkumar has given his consent to act in the remake of Poraali. The movie is made on his home banner Vajreshwari Combines and produced by Parvathamma Rajkumar. It is also noted that Samuthirakani's earlier film Naadodigal was remade in Kannada as Hudugaru, which went on to become a superhit film, last year.
The untitled movie will also mark the debut of Samuthirakani in Kannada. The upcoming project is expected to take off once Puneet Rajkumar completes his other movie Anna Bond.
