Work on the much awaited Tamil remake of the Hindi hit Jolly LLB is to begin today. Talking to City Express, director of the film, Ahmed, said, “We will be shooting at the India Film City.
While Udhayanidhi Stalin will play the male lead, the female lead is being played by Hansika. Aishwarya Rajesh also plays a crucial role in the film. Apart from these three, there are several other artistes in the film including Prakash Raj and Vivekh, who play important roles.”
Music for the film is being scored by Santosh Narayanan and Mathi, who is one of Ahmed’s favourite cameramen, will be the cinematographer.
“The film has four songs in all. We are sticking to the original script and are making sure it is authentic in every manner possible,” Ahmed added.
When asked who came up with the suggestion to remake the film in Tamil, Ahmed said, “I did. This is a story of a lawyer who turns over a new leaf and decides to fight for justice.I very strongly felt that Udhayanidhi Stalin would fit the role of Arshad Warsi and therefore I pitched it to him and he agreed.”
Ahmed says the unit is looking to wind up the film before the year ends and that one can expect it to release early next year.
