This is probably the best news of the day for Ranveer Singh and his fans as the superstar will be collaborating with ace director, Shankar, for the official remake of Vikram starrer Anniyan.
For our viewers, supremely talented Tamil actor Vikram acted in a multiple personality role of soft-spoken Ambi , fashionista Romeo and the angry Anniyan in the Shankar directed Anniyan which was released in 2005 and went on to win accolades and even a National Award for Best Visual Effects. Vikram scaled new heights in probably the most challenging roles of his career and he gave an electrifying performance in the psychological thriller.
Shankar is known to have experimented with various genre in his films like Gentleman, Kadhalan, Indian, Sivaji, Enthiran and Robot 2.0. Now, Ranveer Singh joins hands with Shankar for a Hindi-language remake of 2005 Tamil-language blockbuster. The Padmaavat star Ranveer Singh was equally excited “I am blessed to have this opportunity to be a part of the spectacular cinematic vision of Shankar sir,”. He further added “He is an exception to the norm, a true disruptor. I had always hoped and dreamed that I would get a chance to collaborate with him. To lead a film like ‘Anniyan’ is a dream come true for any artiste. Vikram sir, one of our country’s finest talents, an artiste who I hugely admire, gave a colossal performance in the original, one that can never be matched. I can only hope that my interpretation and rendition of the part also connects with audiences in the same way“
The Hindi remake of Anniyan is being produced by Dr. Jayantilal Gada’s Pen Studios (“Namaste England”) and co-produced by God Bless Entertainment. The shooting of Anniyan remake is expected to start in mid of 2022 while the female lead opposite Ranveer Singh is yet to be finalized. Shankar is currently wrapping the shoot of much awaited sequel to Indian, Indian 2, starring Kamal Hassan
