Will Rathnakumar direct Aadai Hindi remake or not?

There was a buzz was that Kangana Ranaut has been roped in to play the female lead in the Hindi remake of Aadai. This rumour has now been refuted by actor-producer C. Arun Pandian‘s A&P Groups through an official press statement.

In a statement, Arun Pandian said that Kangana Ranaut has not been approached for playing any role in the film. Pandian confirmed that his company A&P Groups has tied up with a big production company in Mumbai for remaking Aadai in Hindi.

He stated that the film will be remade with great international standards with a leading popular star and added saying that he holds the remake rights of the film for all languages.

“We have not approached Kangna Ranaut for the lead. The rumor spreading is false news. The director and crew are yet to be finalised. Kindly avoid further rumors,” read the press statement.

A&P Groups which is primarily into production and distribution of Tamil films acquired the remake rights of Aadai in all languages. It has tied up with a production company in Mumbai to shoot the Hindi version on a large-scale.

Aadai was helmed by Meyaadha Maan fame Rathna Kumar and produced by Viji Subramanian under the V Studios production banner. The movie revolves around a free-spirited TV show anchor who goes beyond limits in an attempt to break the behavioural pattern set by society for women.

Rathna Kumar, a few days ago, in a Facebook post had revealed that he’d be helming the Hindi remake as well. But Arun Pandian’s press release says the director and the cast are yet to be finalised. For now, Rathna Kumar is penning the screenplay of Thalapathy 64, along with filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj.
