The ‘Kuttrame Thandanai’ actor, who made a cameo in Jyothika’s ‘Magalir Mattum’ will be playing her husband in the ‘Tumhari Sulu’ remake. While the actress will be essaying the titular role, the makers have also announced that Lakshmi Manju will be playing Neha Dhupia’s role as Sulu’s boss.
The Film producer, Dhananjayan revealed that Mahesh Muthusamy will be handling the camera while National Award winning Praveen KL will wield the scissors. ‘Moozhi’ director, Radha Mohan will be directing the remake. On choosing the actor, the director had this to say. “This is not the usual hero’s role, and we wanted an actor who could understand the nuances of the character and then play it on screen. From the current crop of youngsters, we felt that Vitharth would fit the bill. He has been associated with some interesting projects, and he happily came on board when we approached him.”
While the producer added “He is an understanding husband, but puts self-respect above everything. We were looking at casting a hero, but we’re not looking for heroism, Vidharth was amazing in films like Kuttrame Thandanai, Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu and Kurangu Bommai. That’s why we approached him.”
