Sriram Raghavan directorial Andhadhun turned out to be a critical and commercial success in Bollywood following which its remake rights were lapped up by Sudhakar Reddy, father of Tollywood actor Nithiin. While there were various speculations on who would be playing the lead role in the remake, it has now been confirmed that Nithiin himself will be playing the lead role.
As per the latest news, it has been confirmed that Merlapaka Gandhi will be helming the remake as its director with Nithiin’s home banner Sresht Movies bankrolling it. The shooting will commence in a few months with the team planning for its release for Christmas 2020.
