We know that STR is currently busy with the remake of Kannada film, Mufti. The latest we hear is that the team has roped in Bigg Boss Tamil contestant Sendrayan for the film. There is still no clarity on his role in the project. The speculation is that Simbu will play a gangster in the film, while Gautham Karthik, a cop. The film is directed by Narthan, who directed the neo-noir action crime thriller in Kannada.
The original had Shivarajkumar playing the don, while Srimurali appearing as a police officer. The film marks the debut of Narthan in Tamil. Mufti was high on action quotient and it is expected that the Tamil version will have the same amount of action-packed scenes. This is also the first time that Simbu and Gautham Karthik are teaming up for a film. The film is yet to get a title.
