The upcoming remake would be Dhanush’s third Bollywood film after Raanjhanaa & Shamitabh and Rane’s second post his debut Sanam Teri Kasam.
Bejoy Nambair’s upcoming remake of Agni Natchathiram (a 1988 Tamil film) has already seen a casting change with Dhanush from Vicky Kaushal, after the latter declined the role.
Now, Bejoy has made a couple of changes to the script to rope in not only Dhanush, but also southern hero, Harshvardhan Rane. Confirming the news, a source added that the actress is yet to get finalised.
We had earlier come to find out that Vicky’s contention with the film was more than just a matter of clashing schedules. According to a source, Vicky had walked out of the film citing date issues. But contradictory reports suggested that it was because he was unhappy with the actress they were thinking of casting opposite him.
“The film was supposed to go on floors in August, this year since the makers wanted to avoid shooting during the monsoons. However, Vicky had already committed his dates to another film during this period, hence had no other option but to drop out of the film,” the source further adds.
