Kamal Haasan to shoot 'Drishyam' Tamil remake from mid-2014
Chennai, Feb 4 : Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan will commence filming the yet-to-be-titled Tamil remake of recent Malayalam blockbuster "Drishyam" from the second half of 2014, says director Jeethu Joseph.
Superstar Mohanlal-starrer "Drishyam", which was helmed by Jeethu, released during Christmas weekend last year. It has emerged as the biggest hit in Malayalam filmdom.
"Kamal sir has expressed interest to act in the Tamil remake of the film. We will start shooting from the second half of 2014. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon," Jeethu, who will also direct the remake, told IANS.
"Drishyam", which is about a father's effort to cover up a murder to protect his family, is still running to packed houses in Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu.
The film is set to be remade in Telugu and Hindi.
Daggubati Venkatesh will feature in its Telugu remake, which will be helmed by Sripriya, while the talks are on for the Hindi remake with a top star.
Southern actress Meena, who essayed an important role of Mohanlal's wife in "Drishyam", is likely to be retained for the Tamil remake as well.
Kamal, 59, is also set to soon start working on Tamil comedy "Uthama Villain" with long time industry friend and co-star Ramesh Arvind.
