Richa Panai heads to Bollywood

Chennai, Sep 19 : Southern actress Richa Panai, known for films such as "Yamudiki Mogudu" and "MMS", will make her Bollywood debut in the upcoming yet untitled Hindi remake of Malayalam blockbuster "Traffic".


"Since it's my Bollywood debut, I'm extremely happy that I'm part of this remake. It's a big team and I have a nice role to play. I'm really looking forward to start working," Richa told IANS.

The remake will be helmed by Rajesh Pillai, who had directed the original. The film also features Manoj Bajpayee, Prosenjit Chaterjee, Jimmy Shergill, Parambrata Chaterjee, Divya Dutta and Nikitha Thukral.

Richa will be paired with Parambrata in the film, which will be produced by Endemol India, while Fox Star Studios will distribute it.



"Traffic" was inspired by real events. It's the story about how the heart of a donor is delivered amid traffic for a transplant.

It was recently remade in Tamil as "Chennaiyil Oru Naal", which opened to critical acclaim in cinemas.

The Hindi remake will also feature a big Bollywood star in a cameo, which was played by Suriya Sivakumar in the Tamil version.
