Dhyan Sreenivasan sheds weight for Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya remake?
We had earlier reported about the hit Telugu film ‘Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya’ getting remade in Malayalam. Dhyan Sreenivasan will be playing the lead role in the film. It is reported that the actor is currently reducing weight. It is important that he is in good shape as he plays a detective’s character in the film. Jithu Vayallil will be directing the film and the script is adapted by Bipin Chandran of ‘1983’ fame.
‘Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya’ starring Naveen Polishetty was a big success that went on to be raved by non-Telugu audience as well. The film directed by Swaroop RSJ is about a small-time detective who sets out to solve a murder case which eventually leads to a big crime racket. Naveen Polishetty, who also co-wrote the film, delivered a cracker of a performance that was unanimously lauded. It will indeed be a challenge for Dhyan to live up to that.
Dhyan currently has a slew of commitments lined up. He will be seen playing one of the leads alongside Suraj Venjaramoodu in ‘Higuita’, directed by debutant Hemanth G Nair. ‘Adukkala: The Manifesto’, a family drama directed by newcomer Maxwell Jose is another project in his kitty. The film has Lena and Dhyan as the leads as a mother-son duo. He is also scripting a comedy entertainer titled ‘Pathira Kurbana’. The film has him, Aju Varghese and Neeraj Madhav in the lead roles.
