Rumours about Mufti Tamil remake starring Simbu dropped are false; Second schedule to commence soon: Gnanavel Raja
Several sources suggested that the film produced by KE Gnanavel Raja has been dropped
Recently, reports were rife that the Tamil remake of the Kannada film, Mufti, starring Simbu and Gautham Karthik has been dropped. It was said that the film's producer KE Gnanavel Raja had to take this decision as Simbu failed to turn up for the shoot. Several sources also suggested that the producer has filed a complaint against the Vaalu actor in the producers' council.
But, when we reached out to Gnanavel Raja, he confirmed that the reports were baseless and false. "The film is shaping up well, with the first schedule wrapped up. We will commence the second schedule soon. The audience shouldn't believe in such rumours that are being spread with vested interests," he said.
The Tamil remake of Mufti is being helmed by Narathan, who also made the original, starring Sriimurali and Shivarajkumar. It may be recalled that photos and videos from the first schedule of the film, featuring Simbu, Gautham and comedian Sentraayan went viral a few months ago.
Notably, Simbu had recently announced that his next film will be titled Maghaa Maanadu, after being dropped by producer Suresh Kamatchi from the Venkat Prabhu-directorial Maanadu.
