The Tamil remake of Telugu super hit Pelli Choopulu was supposed to be made with Vishnu Vishal and Tamannaah. Gautham Menon had originally agreed to bankroll the film and his long-time associate Senthil was the chosen one to direct the project. But due to the financial issues, they dropped the idea.
Now, Harish Kalyan of Pyaar Prema Kadhal fame has been roped in to play the lead role in the remake which is being produced and directed by a new team.
Harish's longtime friend Karthik is debuting as a director with the Tamil remake for which Vishal Chandrasekhar is composing the music and Krishnan Vasanth will crank the camera.
Harish Kalyan also plays the lead role in the Tamil remake of Vicky Donor.
