Telugu remake rights of a Bollywood movie Andhadhun were bagged by Tagore Madhu. Nithiin will be seen as the main lead in this movie directed by Merlapaka Gandhi under the Shresta Movies banner. This project was launched in February. Now, some changes are being made in the script according to the Telugu nativity.
In the process of finalizing the other cast, the movie team approached Illeana D’Cruz for a crucial role in this project. Originally that role was played by Tabu but Illeana rejected this offer as she doesn’t want to act in an aged role which is older than her actual age and it’s not the heroine role. However, the latest reports say that she signed as a female lead for Nagarjuna-Praveen Sattar movie. Initially, the moviemakers wanted Tabu to act in Telugu version too but somehow it didn’t happen and now Shilpa Shetty replaced her, and Nabha Natesh was roped as a female lead. Nithiin is currently working for Rang De directed by Venky Atluri. It’s shooting is on hold due to lockdown. The remake of Andhadhun may go on the floor once Nithiin completes Rang De.
