Tamannaah will share the screen space with Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt, while the film will be produced by Ajay Devgn. The film will be helmed by Nishikant Kamat, who has previously worked with Ajay Devgn in Drishyam. Interestingly, Drishyam was also the remake of a Malayalam film of the same name.

Tamannaah Bhatia will start the shooting of the film, after wrapping up the Queen Remake. The storyline of Jigarthanda will be altered a bit to give the Bollywood touch to the film. While the original was set at Madurai, the Hindi remake be based in a village of Maharashtra. The original picture featured Siddharth, Bobby Simha and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles and was directed by Karthik Subbaraj. Jigarthanda had won two National Film Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Bobby Simha) and Best Editing (Vivek Harshan). The movie was reported to be loosely inspired by the South Korean movie A Dirty Carnival.

On the professional front, Ajay Devgn will be next seen in Rajkumar Gupta’s Raid along with Ileana D’cruz.
