Lead actor Harish Kalyan said, “Dharala Prabhu is a new-age Tamil romantic comedy that is sure to leave audiences in splits! I have been fortunate enough to be able to work on the remake of a film as highly acclaimed as Vicky Donor”.
“I was very intrigued when I watched Shoojit Sircar’s film Vicky Donor in 2012 and had hoped that I could collaborate with him on something similar,” Director Krishna Marimuthu said, “Dharala Prabhu has been a dream come true for me where I got the opportunity to recreate Shoojit Sir’s progressive take on such an interesting albeit rarely addressed topic for the Tamil film audience. The team has given us complete freedom to give our take on the film and I had a great experience working with such a wonderful cast.”
The film had a limited run in theaters because of the lockdown.
