Kangana Ranaut At The 'Cauvery Calling' Press Meet

Actor Amala Paul starrer Aadai recently hit screens after tackling several issues owing to the actor’s undaunted performance in the film. Post-release, the buzz was that actor Kangana Ranaut has been roped in to play the female lead in the Hindi remake of Aadai. This rumour has now been refuted by actor-producer C. Arun Pandian‘s A&P Groups through an official press statement.

“We have not approached Kangna Ranaut for the lead. The rumor spreading is false news. The director and crew are yet to be finalised. Kindly avoid further rumors,” read the press statement.

A&P Groups which is primarily into production and distribution of Tamil films acquired the remake rights of Aadai in all languages. It has tied up with a production company in Mumbai to shoot the Hindi version on a large-scale. The shooting will commence soon with a popular artist from the Bollywood industry essaying the role of Sudhandhira Kodi aka Kamini, Amala’s character in the Tamil version. The team has also reportedly planned to bring onboard top artists for the supporting cast.


Aadai was helmed by Meyaadha Maan fame Rathna Kumar and produced by Viji Subramanian under the V Studios production banner. The movie revolves around a free-spirited TV show anchor who goes beyond limits in an attempt to break the behavioural pattern set by society for women, leading her into deep trouble. The drama-thriller fared decently at the box office with mixed reviews on Amala’s role.

Amala Paul headlined the film along with actors Vivek Prasanna, Ramya Subramanian, Vada Poche Sarithiran, Ananya Ramaprasad, Rohith Nandakumar, Kishore Dev, T. M. Karthik, and Sriranjini who played the supporting roles. Vijay Kartik Kannan handled cinematography, Shafique Mohammed Ali took care of the edit and Pradeep Kumar composed music along with the Oorka band who made their debut into the industry.

Incidentally, the film premieres on television on 26 October, Saturday at 5 PM on Colours Tamil.
