Mufti remake starring Simbu and Gautham Karthik titled as Pathu Thala
Simbu and Gautham Karthik are starring in the Tamil remake of blockbuster Kannada film ‘Mufti’. The remake version has been titled as ‘Pathu Thala’. It is directed by Obeli N Krishna of ‘Sillunu Oru Kaadhal’ and ‘Nedunchalai’ fame. KR Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green is producing the film.
‘Mufti’ is a neo-noir action-thriller starring Shiva Rajkumar and Sriimurali as the leads. The Tamil remake first went on floors last year. Narthan, the director of the orginal, was supposed to helm the Tamil version as well. However, it got shelved at the initial stages after a tussle between the director and producer. Simbu was also irregular in attending shoots. The team had then shot for around 10 days.
Director Krishna has now adapted the screenplay of ‘Pathu Thala’ in a different style. They might be retaining a few scenes from the earlier shot version. They are currently finalizing the rest of the cast and crew members.
