Jayam Ravi in Baby remake

Jayam Ravi will be teaming up with Endrendrum Punnagai fame director Ahmed. There is a buzz that the movie will be a remake of Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 Bollywood action thriller, Baby.

However, Ahmed says, “Not at all. My film with Ravi will be based on an original script. I’m currently working on the script and we will start shooting once it is firmed up.”

In Baby, Akshay Kumar played the lead role, while the film also featured Taapsee Pannu and Rana Daggubati in pivotal characters.

Ravi is currently busy with a cop thriller Andanga Maru, which is being directed by newcomer Karthik Thangavel and the actor’s mother-in-law is bankrolling the film. If all goes well, the shoot of his film with Ahmed will go on floors by the end of this year.

While the actor’s space thriller Tik Tik Tik is awaiting release, he is likely to start shooting for Sundar C’s historical fantasy Sangamithra this summer onwards.
