Confirmed: Udhayanidhi Stalin to play the lead in Article 15 Tamil remake!
Superhit Hindi film ‘Article 15’ is set to be remade in various regional languages. Bollywood-based producer Boney Kapoor had bagged the Tamil remake rights of the film. Initially, there were speculations about Thala Ajith starring in the Tamil remake but it never materialized. It has now been confirmed that the makers have got Udhayanidhi Stalin on board.
‘Kanaa’ fame Arunraja Kamaraja will be directing the remake version. It will be interesting to see how Udhayanidhi reprises Ayushmann Khuranna’s role from the original. This is also the first time he is playing a police officer’s role. Since ‘Article 15’ has a storyline with a nationwide appeal, it should work with the Tamil audience as well.
