'Kakki Chattai' remake: Prithviraj in Kamal's role
'Kakki Chattai' (1985), one of the biggest blockbusters in Kamal Haasan's career, is all set to be remade in Malayalam.
And guess who would reprise the role of "Ulaga Nayagan" in the remake? It is none other than Prithviraj! The film will be directed by Pramod-Pappan and will be produced by Jagadeesh Chandran of Kichu Films.
'Kakki Chattai' showcased Kamal's unmatched charisma onscreen. He played a young man who wanted desperately to join the police force. Ambika and Madhavi played the female leads, while Sathiyaraj made a stunning performance in the role of the villain. Beautiful songs scored by Ilayaraja and breathtaking action scenes were the other highlights of the masala movie, directed by Rajasekhar.
It would be interesting to see how Prithviraj, who has done police roles earlier in films such as 'Satyam', 'Police' and 'Vargam', takes up the challenge of reprising a role made famous by Kamal Haasan.
