After eight long months, Asin has finally signed a Tamil film! She is going to be Vijay’s heroine in Prabhu Deva directed remake of the Telugu hit Pokiri produced by financier Ramesh under the banner of ‘Kanagaratna Movies’.
Ileana who did the original was Vijay’s first choice but she has become too busy in Telugu. And after scouting for some new Bollywood girls, Asin has been finally zeroed in. It is definitely the right choice as Vijay-Asin pair was a treat in that super hit Sivakasi.
Now Pokiri has a deadly combination of Vijay, Asin and director Prabhu Deva, which will definitely provide maximum entertainment. Music is by Mani Sharma who did the original and had given that chartbuster item number song for Vijay Aalthotta Bhoopathi… in Youth.
The villain in Pokiri remake will be Pasupathy and camera by Venu .
