Dhanush is a multi-faceted artist. His directorial debut Pa Paandi is the testimony to that. With veteran actor Rajkiran playing the lead role, Pa Paandi has opened to rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Interestingly, the film is being considered to be remade in Telugu. According to reports, superstar Rajinikanth suggested the script to his long-time friend Mohan Babu to remake the film in Telugu, which will be helmed by Subramaniam Siva.

It is learnt that actor Mohan Babu will star in the film’s remake, and will reprise the role of an aging stunt man. Apparently, Rajinikanth, a good friend of the actor, arranged a special screening of the film for him. As Mohan Babu was mighty impressed with the film, Rajini suggested that he star in the Telugu remake. The film will be directed by Subramaniam Siva, who directed Donga Dangadi.

Talking to us, Siva says, “Mohan Babu sir really liked the film, and we are currently in the process of finalising the rest of the crew. He is currently recuperating from a surgery, and we will go on floors in the next couple of months.”

Siva has worked with Dhanush in films like Thiruda Thirudi and Seedan.

Pa Paandi, which is produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films, has veteran actress Revathi, Prasanna and Chaya Singh in pivotal roles. Dhanush and Madonna Sebastian play an extended cameo.

Several critics have heaped praise on Sean Roldan’s compositions for Pa Paandi, especially the song Paarthen.
