Despite being busy directing the Suriya starrer Matraan, KV Anand is focused on remaking Ko in Hindi. Producers RS Infotainment were in talks with a leading star in Bollywood to play the lead role in this remake but that did not materialize.
Following this, Ranbir Kapoor was approached for the role essayed by Jiiva in the original and he had agreed to join hands with KV Anand. Ranbir understands that Tamil remakes are selling like hot cakes in Bollywood and it would be a good idea to star in a remake.
Director Susindhran picks unique concepts and makes sure his films are literally different in all aspects from his previous ones. While ‘Vennila Kabadi Kulu’ was a sang-froid entertainer, his other film ‘Naan Mahaan Alla’ proved to be a A-One crime thriller. Apparently, his previous film ‘Azhagar Saamiyin Kuthirai’ was completely different and unparalleled from his other flicks.
Yes, ‘Rajapattai’ wouldn’t be an exception from this league and this is going to be more off a completely brand new style. ‘Rajapattai will be a commercial treat laced with humor, action, sentiments, glamour and more elements’ starts off Susindhran as he sheds lights on this film.
Ask him about making films based on different genres? Susindhran says, “Manirathnam sir was one of my deepest inspirations as his films always vary in style, but prove to be excellent ones. ‘Anjali’ and ‘Thalapathy’ hadn’t matched up even in a single similarity, but they were big hits. Similarly, filmmakers Manivannan and Shankar have always tried on different platforms and witnessed success.”
