Sify.com had earlier reported that STR and Arya are in talks to join hands for the Tamil remake of Kannada hit ‘Mufti’. On Sunday, Studio Green announced that their new film is with STR, Gautham Karthik, and ‘Mufti’ director Narthan.
Sources say that Studio Green has acquired the remake rights of Mufti and also roped in the original director Narthan to helm the Tamil version.
Interestingly, the new project marks STR’s 45th film in the industry. Once STR wraps up his long-awaited political drama Maanaadu with Venkat Prabhu, he is expected to begin shooting for Mufti remake.
If sources say are to be believed STR will be seen playing an anti-hero in Mufti and Gautham Karthik is likely to be seen as a cop. The makers will soon confirm the rest of the cast and crew of the film.
