Well, Thiagarajan has said that he is not going to force his son
Prashanth to take up the project. Even though he is aware of the
value that the actor brings in to the project, the former would not
pressurise him simply because the latter is busy with his own
"Prashanth is busy with other projects. I'm not going to
pressurize him to be part of the remake. His presence would
definitely add some value to the project, but the choice to act or
not is at his discretion," Thiagarajan told IANS.
Thiagarajan claims that it is not a regular role that has
negative shade to the character. He has plans to cast a different
actor if Prashanth turns down the offer.
"The casting process will start soon. Our idea is to rope in a popular heroine to be part of all the four versions (Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada) of the remake or choose two heroines to be part of two languages each. I don't have anyone in mind yet but we will finalize the female lead soon," Thiagarajan concludes.
