Prabhu and Madhubala, who starred together in the 1996 Seeman directorial, Panchalankurichi, are set to share screen space for the second time, 23 years later, in a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. 

The film, titled College Kumar, is the official remake of 2018 Kannada hit of the same name, which featured Vikky Varun and Samyuktha Hegde in the lead, with P Ravishankar and Shruti in key supporting roles.

Prabhu and Madhubala will reportedly be essaying the roles played by Ravishankar and Shruti in the original, while Telugu actors Rahul Vijay and Priya Vadlamani have been signed to play the leads.

Directed by Hari Santhosh, who also directed the Kannada original, the film is a family entertainer with a college backdrop. Also starring Nasser, Manobala, and Chams, the remake will have music by Qutb-E-Kripa, an ensemble of young musicians from AR Rahman's KM Music Conservatory, who have earlier been co-credited alongside Rahman for the background scores of films such as 24, O Kadhal Kanmani, and Kaatru Veliyidai.
