To be helmed by R.S Prasanna, who directed the original, the film will be jointly produced by Aanand L Rai and Eros.
“He has great admiration for southern filmmakers such as K. Balachander and Mani Ratnam, and also for actors like Kamal Haasan, Dhanush and R Madhavan. He constantly keeps mentioning them in his conversations,” Prasanna had said, describing the working experience so far with Aanand.
“I find it reassuring to work with someone who understands and appreciates southern cinema because I represent that industry,” he added.
Starring Prasanna and Lekha Washington, “Kalyana Samayal Saadham” was about a big fat south Indian wedding with a quirky twist.
