It is reported that director Muthaiah is keen to rope in Karthi or Vijay Sethupathi for the Tamil version of the film
Suri’s directorial Tagaru, which was declared a blockbuster in Kannada, will now be remade in Tamil. The remake rights of the film have been sold to director M Muthaiah. The deal was closed today and Srikanth, who made his debut as the producer with this film, was thrilled about this development.
The Shivarajkumar-starrer was released in February and had a 100-day run. The film also gave a boost to career of actor Dhananjay, who played the antagonist’s role in the film. With an ensemble cast, Tagaru also featured Manvitha Harish, Bhavana and Vasishta Simha.
We're told that the film’s story and style of making caught the attention of Tamil director Muthaiah. Meanwhile, we also hear that Muthaiah will be making his directorial debut in Kannada with a film starring Shivarajkumar to be produced by KE Gnanavel Raja.
While there's no word yet on who will play Shivarajkumar’s role in the Tamil remake, we hear that Muthaiah is keen on roping in Vijay Sethupathi or Karthi for the lead role.
