Kalaignar TV, the official channel of Kollywood is also getting into film production. Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi’s grandson Gunanidhi is going to produce a remake of AVM’s Rajinikanth mass entertainer of 1980 Murattu Kalai, for the channel.
In the remake Sundar.C will play the role made memorable by the superstar, while Suman is in the villain role done by Jayashankar, and Suralirajan’s comedy will be taken over by Vivek. The two heroines are yet to be fixed, in this film which will be directed by Selvabharathy.
Sundar.C is thrilled to do the remake of the film. Says the star: “It is an honour to do the Murattu Kalai remake. I hope that I would be able to do justice to a role done so well by Rajini sir.”
The Murattu Kalai- 2009 will start rolling from December 1, and will be released on April 14, 2009.
