Tamil remake of 'Lucia' to be tweaked
IANS [ Mon, Feb 17, 2014 ]
- Chennai, Feb 17 (IANS) The Tamil remake of critically and commercially successful Kannada blockbuster "Lucia" will have a few changes to suit the sensibilities of the local audience, says its director Prasad Marar.
The yet-untitled remake features southern actor Siddharth in the lead.
"We have already started shooting. The film will undergo minor changes for the local audience. I loved 'Lucia' and therefore, I have a bigger responsibility of doing justice to it (its remake). We plan to complete the film in one long schedule," Prasad told IANS.
Producer C.V. Kumar, known for movies such as "Soodhu Kavvum" and "Pizza", is producing the remake.
"He's a creative producer and working with him is a delight for every director. He gives a lot of freedom and is ready to discuss and come to a consensus over any idea or issue. I'm extremely lucky to be making a directorial debut under his production house," he said.
Kannada actress Deepa Sannidhi is making her Tamil debut with the film.
"Lucia", an independent film, was liked by critics and audiences alike. It was one of highest grossing Kannada films of last year in terms of return on investment.
