We had earlier reported that Simbu and Gautham Karthik will be joining hands for the Tamil remake of the Kannada superhit, Mufti. Today, the producers of the remake, Studio Green, announced that their Production No 20 will be titled Pathu Thala. The title was revealed on social media by ten directors — Venkat Prabhu, Pa Ranjith, Vijay Milton, Anand Shankar, Rajesh, Vignesh Shivan, Karthik Subbaraj, Ashwath Marimuthu, Santhosh P Jayakumar and Sam Anton.

Obeli N Krishna, the director of Studio Green’s maiden production, Sillunu Oru Kadhal, is set to helm the remake that will go on floors in February. “It is like returning home,” says Krishna, who is doubly happy that a project with his long-time friend, Simbu, has finally shaped up. “We were supposed to do a couple of projects even before this, but somehow those didn’t materialise. But now seems to be the perfect time too, considering Simbu is firmly in the limelight again. I’m also happy to work with Gautham, who is such a sweet actor,” adds the filmmaker.
While he has seen the original film, Krishna assures the screenplay for the remake will be changed to suit the Tamil audiences. “Just like Martin Scorsese made Infernal Affairs his own through Departed, Pathu Thala too will be adapted to our sensibilities and feel different than Mufti.” The director is especially delighted to have zeroed in on this title. “Pathu Thala, which symbolises Ravana, is a powerful title, and speaks volumes about the impact of Simbu's character.”
