will make his directorial debut by remaking his father
Bharathiraja"s Sigappu Rojakkal, which featured Kamal Hassan and
Sridevi in the lead roles. KRG, producer of original version will
churn out this remake as well.
Much invigorated with his spirits, Manoj says, “Acting wasn"t my
preference and I had to do it for the sake of fulfilling my
father"s wish. Working with versatile filmmakers like Mani Ratnam
and Shankar has enlightened me a lot over making films with new
dimensions. As of now, I and my father have been working on script
works for this remake, which will be shot in Hollywood style and we
are holding talks with best technicians in the project. Soon after
completing the script, we"ll go for casting the actors and Yuvan
Shankar Raja has already started tuning melodies for the film."
Sigappu Rojakkal was one of the best films ever made by
Bharathiraja which featured Kamal Hassan as a psychopath who
sexually harasses women and slays them.
