Arvind Swamy Is Kollywood’s Mammootty
Arvind Swamy will step into Mammootty’s shoes. Mollywood film Bhaskar the Rascal released two years ago. We were hearing about a Kollywood remake of Bhaskar the Rascal for a year now. But there was no further announcement of which Kollywood actor will play the lead until now.
Deccanchronicle reports a source told them, “It is true that Arvind Swamy has been finalized to reprise Mammootty’s role in the Tamil remake. Shooting of this untitled venture will commence in March 2017. Currently, the makers are looking for a suitable female lead to essay Nayanthara’s role in the Tamil version.” This means Nayanthara will not reprise her role in Tamil version.
Arvind Swamy started his career as a romantic hero with Mani Ratnam’s Roja. But lately, he is playing more mature roles. Arvind Swamy will play the role of a father in Bhaskar the Rascal remake.
Siddique directed original Bhaskar the Rascal; he will also direct the remake version.
