Tamil actor and director Sundar C will play the lead in the remake of last year’s Malayalam blockbuster Vellimoonga. The Malayalam film, directed by cinematographer turned filmmaker Jibu Jacob, had Biju Menon playing the lead.
The film is a laugh riot about a wily politician, who will do anything for his own benefits. The 40 plus local politician falls for a young girl and hatches plans to woo her.
There are also reports that Sundar C has bought the remake rights of the Dileep movie, Pandippada. The film, which also had Prakash Raj in a prominent role, was not a big success in Malayalam.
