Vimal, who has so far played rustic characters in village-based films, is getting an image makeover with Ishtam.
Nisha, the younger sister of Kajal Aggarwal, will be reprising her role from the original. Ishtam marks her debut in the Tamil film industry.
The film also stars Santhanam, Anoop and Parvathy. Prem Nissar, who worked with Chakri Toleti and director Raj Kapoor, wields the megaphone. Thaman is the music director.
