In 2018, Tabu was seen in Andhadhun playing the role of a cold-blooded wife who kills her husband along with her lover. Shriram Raghavan’s film was a cat-and-mouse game between him and him which he thinks is blind. It was both a critical and commercial success, culminating in much discussion and debate on social media.
Ayushmann Khurrana and Radhika Apte starrer is now being made in many South Indian languages and one of them is Tamil. And now according to a Times of India report, the makers of the film have approached Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to reclaim the role of Tabu. The Tamil remake is being played by Mohan Raja. The publication quoted a source as saying, “Raja was held up with a few things, and so, Thiagarajan approached Fredrick to direct the film.“
The source further stated that Fredrik was contacted soon after Ponmagal Vandhaal hit theaters. The team is now planning to kickstart the shooting in Pondicherry from December.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was last seen in Atul Manjrekar’s Fanne Khan in 2018. The film also starred Rajkumar Rao and Anil Kapoor.
