Simbu aka STR, who is happy with the reviews generated by his recent venture, Mani Ratnam’s ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’, is now busy with his upcoming film directed by Sundar C.
The film, which is a remake of Telugu hit ‘Attarintiki Daredi’, already has Megha Akash as leading lady. Now it is learnt that Catherine Tresa has been roped in as other heroine.
Simbu and Sundar recently commenced shooting for the project in Georgia. The yet untitled flick is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions. Sources said the director has made slight changes to the script to suit the tastes of the Tamil audience.
‘Attarintiki Daredi’ is a 2013 comedy-drama film written and directed by Trivikram Srinivas. It stars Pawan Kalyan, Samantha Akkineni and Pranitha Subhash in the lead roles with Nadhiya, Boman Irani and Brahmanandam in supporting roles.
The film focuses on Gautham Nanda, a business heir who acts as a driver in his estranged aunt Sunanda’s house to mend her strained relationship with his grandfather Raghunandan who expelled her for marrying against his wishes years before.
