Producers Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani, who recently wrapped up the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy — Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor, have taken over the remake rights of another Tamil hit Thadam.
The Magizh Thirumeni directed film Thadam starred Arun Vijay, Smruthi Venkat, Tanya Hope and Vidya Pradeep, became a box office juggernaut after its release earlier this month.
“Yes, this is this second remake acquisition after picking up the remake rights of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, which was an underdog film and went on to be a huge hit and so is Thadam. In fact, they picked up Thadam before others could even get their hands on the film,” says a trade source.
Thadam is a typical whodunnit and has Arun Vijay in dual roles. One of them murders a youngster and the case becomes one of the most controversial stories for the media as well.
The producers’ duo Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani is also making Satellite Shankar with Sooraj Pancholi....
