Rumours are rife that the upcoming film is a remake of Race, where Ajith Kumar and Arya will be seen as siblings. Like the original film, the upcoming movie is also a multi-starrer film comprising Nayantara, Tapasee and Mahesh Manjrekar. However, the production house sources have denied the rumours and have claimed that the story of the movie is original.
Bollywood movie Race, which starred Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor and Sameera Reddy, is about sibling rivalry, about their betrayal and greed, intrigue and revenge. It was directed by Abbas-Mustan.
However, the untitled movie directed by Vishnuvardhan was launched on Thursday (May 31). The formal pooja was held at Vishwaroopa Sri Shridi Sai Baba Mandir, Chennai. The regular shooting of the film will start tomorrow (June 2) in Mumbai and it lasts for 26 days.
