Yet to find actor to play transgender's role: Lawrence

Chennai, Dec 30 : Ajay Devgn will play the lead in the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster "Kanchana", but director Raghava Lawrence says he is yet to zero in on an actor for the transgender's role in the film, which will go on the floors next year.


In the original, Tamil actor Sarath Kumar played the role of a transgender who seeks revenge in the form of a spirit.

"The project is on with Ajay Devgn but we are yet to finalise an actor for the role of the transgender. It's a very important role and I need someone who could play it with a lot of dedication because not all actors are keen to essay such roles. It will take time," Lawrence told IANS.

Lawrence, who directed as well as played the lead in "Kanchana", will helm the Hindi remake to be jointly produced by Hindi movie actor Tusshar Kapoor and Shabina Khan.

Ajay has already starred in Hindi remakes of southern films such as "Singham" and "Son of Sardaar".

Meanwhile, Lawrence is busy shooting for the sequel to "Kanchana", titled "Ganga-Muni 3".
