Arvind Swamy has wrapped up the shoot of Bhaskar Oru Rascal, the official remake of Malayalam hit Bhaskar The Rascal.
“Finished my shooting for #BhaskarOruRascal, (except for one song). This will be a super entertainer! thanks team, will miss y’all,” the Bombay and Roja actor tweeted.
Written and directed by Siddique, the film features Arvind Swamy and Amala Paul in the lead roles, while Baby Nainika play supporting role.
Featuring music composed by D Imman, the venture began production in February 2017.
The success of Siddique’s Malayalam film, Bhaskar the Rascal (2015) prompted the makers to consider making a Tamil version, with Ajith Kumar linked to the lead role in late 2015.
After the plans failed to materialise, Siddique began discussions with actor Rajinikanth in early 2016 to play the lead role, but the actor eventually chose not to do the film.
In September 2016, Siddique finalised Arvind Swamy as the male lead and held unsuccessful discussions with Nayanthara and then Sonakshi Sinha to star opposite him.
In early 2017, Siddique selected Amala Paul and Nainika to play the other lead roles in the film.
