Now, the film is to be remade in Hindi too. However, the director for the Bollywood version will be K.S. Adhiyamaan, an acclaimed director in Tamil, with his films Sornamukhi and Thotta Sinungi receiving rave reviews. He also directed Priyasakhi with Madhavan and Sada, which was a commercial hit.
The director's recent release is Thoondil with a bold theme. It has also found favour with critics. Adhiyamaan is a known face in Bollywood having already made two films with Salman Khan. However, the remake will have Sunny Deol in Suresh Gopi's role. One hopes the director would make the Hindi version too a success like the original.
