Actor Prashanth will be seen playing the lead role in the Tamil remake of Sriram Raghavan's Hindi blockbuster thriller film Andhadhun starring Ayushmann Khurrana.
While reports were saying Dhanush was in the race to buy the remake rights, Prashanth's dad Thiagarajan procured the rights as he had previously snapped the remake rights of Special 26 from the producers of Andhadhun.
Thiagarajan is currently busy assembling the team for the Tamil remake of Andhadhun. The producer will also be bankrolling Prashanth's new film with director A Venkatesh.
Sources say that Prashanth will be simultaneously shooting for Andhadhun and Venkatesh's untitled film.
