Jayam Ravi and his brother M.Raja - the remake kings of Kollywood will take up yet another remake. This time, they have taken up Telugu blockbuster Bommarilu. They have made some changes to meet the taste of the Tamil audience. Actress genelia dsouza, who acted in the original version is going to act in its remake too.
The brother duo has chosen genelia dsouza for the female lead role though she is not doing too well in Kollywood. Actor Prakash Raj will play the same role he played in the original and Devi Sri Prasad will score the music. But this time, they have teamed up with a new producer. The fact is that all their previous hits Jayam, M.Kumaran and Unakkum Enakkum are produced by Editor Mohan. But Kalpathi S. Agoram, the producer of Thiruttu Payale will produce this film film. Also, it will be for the first time the brothers do film together for an outside banner.
When asking about this project, Director Raja said, "Remake is not an easy job as thought by many. I never think that remake is a demerit for a director. It is an art like creating a film. My previous movies have proved skills in remake. We have not decided the title for Tamil version of Bommarilu but we are planning to start it from mid-June. Many have raised question about the heroine of the remake. I have not gone wrong with my selection. Success of a film doest not depend on the heroine alone. There are many factors that decide the fate of a film. This film will break the myths of genelia dsouza."
