In an official announcement, JSB Sathish, producer of Vikram Prabhu's heist thriller Asuraguru has confirmed that he is all set to bankroll the remake of the 1983 blockbuster drama film Munthanai Mudichu directed and acted by Bhagyaraj.
The remake will feature Sasikumar in the lead but it's unclear whether Bhagyaraj will be helming the remake or not.
Sources say that the veteran filmmaker will be penning the story, dialogues, and screenplay of Munthanai Mudichu. The film is all about a mischievous girl (played by Urvashi) who falls in the love with a widower teacher, which leads to a lot of confusion and trouble in the village.
Ilaiyaraaja composed the music for the original which was also remade in Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi.
