Raghava Lawrence, who acted and directed Kanchana 2, will play the role of an IPS officer in the Tamil remake of Pataas. The film will be directed by Sai Ramani, whose previous work includes Singam Puli.
Pataas, directed by debutante Anil Ravipudi, and starring Nanamuri Kalyan Ram, was one of Tollywood’s most successful films this year. The story revolved around a rogue IPS officer who reforms after an incident. The cast for the Tamil remake will include two heroines, and is yet to be finalised.
Raghava Lawrence recently announced that he would be working on two other films, Motta Siva, Ketta Shiva and Naga. Both films will be directed by him.
