Nabha Natesh signs Andhadhun remake
The iSmart Shankar actor is set to reprise Radhika Apte's role in the Telugu remake headlined by Nithiin and directed by Merlapaka Gandhi
Sriram Raghavan's Andhadhun (2018) won three National Awards, including Best Actor for Ayushmann Khurrana. The black comedy thriller is now being remade in Telugu with Nithiin stepping into the shoes of Ayushmann and Merlapaka Gandhi donning the director's hat. iSmart Shankar girl Nabha Natesh has been roped in to play Radhika Apte's character of Sophie, a young woman who befriends Akash, a blind pianist played by Ayushmann.
"After contemplating several options, the makers have approached Nabha recently and she liked both the storyline and her character. She is thrilled to be a part of the remake of a path-breaking film like Andhadhun and has signed on the dotted line," reveals a source.
The Telugu film will go on floors soon after normalcy returns. The yet-to-be-titled remake is being bankrolled by N Sudhakar Reddy and Nikitha Reddy under the Sreshth Movies banner. Details of the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
Andhadhun, which featured Tabu in a crucial role, is also being remade in Tamil with Prashanth playing the protagonist and Mohan Raj directing.
