“The first look of the film will be released on Saturday evening. The principal shooting commences from next Monday,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
To be helmed by Sudha Kongara, who directed the original, the remake stars kick boxer-turned-actress Ritika Singh in the lead.
Venkatesh will reprise Madhavan’s role as a washed-up boxing coach, who finds a champion in a fish-seller, played by Ritika.
Y Not Studios, the company that had bankrolled the original, is also producing the remake.
