Tamil remake of Ishq titled Aasai; First look out
As reported earlier by us, the 2019-released Malayalam film ‘Ishq’ is getting remade in Tamil with Kathir as the lead. The film has been titled ‘Aasai’ and its first look got released last day. Kathir and the female lead Divya Bharathi of ‘Bachelor’ fame feature in the poster. Aasai directed by Shiv Mohaa, who has earlier made ‘Zero’.
‘Ishq’ starring Shane Nigam and Shine Tom Chacko in the lead roles was a hit film that also won widespread critical acclaim. Directed by debutant Anuraj Manohar and scripted by Ratheesh Ravi, ‘Ishq’ dealt with moral policing on a superficial level, but it also exposed the hypocrisy and misogyny prevalent in today’s society.
While Kathir is reprising Shane Nigam’s role, Linga essays the role played by Shine Tom Chacko. Linga is noted for his roles in films like ‘Sethupathi’, ‘Penguin’ and ‘Sindhubaadh’. Poorna aka Shamna Kasim reprises Leona Lishoy’s role.
‘Aasai’ has music scored by Revaa and cinematography by Babu Kumar. This film produced by Eagle’s Eye Production is currently in the post-production stage.
