Vivekh joins Harish Kalyan's Vicky Donor Tamil remake
The actor will be playing the role of a doctor — a crucial character that was portrayed by veteran actor Annu Kapoor in the original
We had earlier reported that the 2012 Hindi romcom Vicky Donor, which marked the debut of Ayushmann Khurrana, is getting a Tamil remake, titled Dharala Prabhu and Harish Kalyan will be playing the lead role in it. Now, we hear that actor Vivekh, who was last seen in the Vivek Elangovan-directed Vellai Pookkal, will be playing the role of a doctor — a crucial character that was portrayed by veteran actor Annu Kapoor in the original — in the remake.
Dharala Prabhu also marks the Tamil debut of director Krishna Marimuthu, who directed the Naga Chaitanya-starrer Yuddham Sharanam, two years ago. The remake is produced by Screen Scene Media Entertainment, the company that distributed the Vishal-starrer Ayogya.
Vicky Donor, produced by John Abraham, is the story of a man who donates sperm for money and faces unexpected repercussions because of it.
Vivekh, meanwhile, will next be seen in Vijay's Thalapathy 63, directed by Atlee and co-starring Nayanthara.
