National Award winning-actor Bobby Simhaa will reprise his role in the Telugu remake of Tamil-Malayalam bilingual Neram, making it his debut in the language.
"Simhaa has been roped in to play the antagonist. He will be essaying his own role as the ruthless loan shark from the original," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
According to the source, the makers were in talks with few other actors to play the villain, but the role was eventually bagged by Simhaa, who currently has over half a dozen Tamil films under his kitty.
While Ko 2 is directed by Sarath and has Prakash Raj and Nikki Galrani playing important roles, Iraivi is helmed by Karthik Subbaraj and has the likes of Vijay Sethupathi, SJ Surya and Kamalinee Mukherjee in prominent roles.
Bobby Simha will also be seen in movies like Arjun, Divya Matrum Karthik (an official remake of Bangalore Days), Paambhu Sattai, Metro, Vallavanukku Vallavan and Kavalai Vendam.
