Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been approached to play one of the leads in Tamil remake of Andhadhun. The film will be directed by JJ Fredrick.
Earlier this year, Prashanth’s father and producer Thiagarajan announced that he will be bankrolling Tamil remake of Ayushmann Khuranna’s Andhadhun and the film will be directed by Mohan Raja of Thani Oruvan fame. The latest update is that Mohan Raja has opted out of the project due to reasons best known to the makers. JJ Fredrick, who made his debut in Tamil industry with Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal, has been roped in as the director of the film. Interestingly, we hear that Aishwarya Rai has been approached to play Tabu’s character in the Tamil version of Andhadhun.
When IndiaToday.in contacted the producer of the film, Thiagarajan, he said, “We are in talks with Aishwarya Rai. However, she is yet to sign the project.” If this happens, Aishwarya Rai and Prashanth will be working together again after almost 22 years.
