Shriya Saran opposite Vemal

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds’ popular romantic comedy The Proposal is being remade in Tamil with Vemal and Shriya Saran playing the lead roles.

According to sources, Shriya had signed this film a while ago, and the first schedule got over two months ago in London.

“It’s based on the Malayalam film My Boss, which had Dileep and Mamta Mohandas in the lead, which in turn was a loose remake of the Sandra Bullock- Ryan Reynolds-starrer The Proposal,” reports said, quoting sources.

R Madhesh of Mohini and Madhurey fame is directing the film and the first schedule got wrapped up recently in London. Though it’s not clear whether Madhesh got the official remake rights, the story of Sandakaari is based on The Proposal, it is learnt.

The next schedule will mostly begin from next month, and Shriya had gone back to Russia from London to be with her husband, Andrei Koscheev, it is said.

“She will join the team next month to resume shoot. The makers are presently finalising the location, and it could mostly be in Chennai or somewhere in coastal Tamil Nadu,” added reports.
