The Tamil remake of critically and commercially successful Kannada blockbuster Lucia will have a few changes to suit the sensibilities of the local audience, says its director Prasad Marar.

The untitled remake features actor Siddharth in the lead. “We have already started shooting. The film will undergo minor changes for the local audience. I loved Lucia and therefore, I have a bigger responsibility of doing justice to its remake). We plan to complete the film in one long schedule,” said Prasad.

Producer C V Kumar, known for movies such as Soodhu Kavvum and Pizza, is producing the remake.

“He’s a creative producer and working with him is a delight for every director. He gives a lot of freedom and is ready to discuss and come to a consensus over any idea or issue. I’m extremely lucky to be making a directorial debut under his production house,” he said.

Kannada actor Deepa Sannidhi is making her Tamil debut with the film.

Lucia, an independent film, was one of the highest grossing Kannada films of last year in terms of return on investment.
