It is time for new a brother-sister duo in Sandalwood. Darshan and Amulya will be playing brother and sister in the Kannada remake of “Vedalam”.
A few days ago we had revealed that Amulya will be making a comeback to Sandalwood with a film directed by a newbie. Now it seems that she is on a signing spree. She has agreed to be part of Darshan’s next, which is a remake of the Tamil blockbuster “Vedalam”, starring Ajith.
Darshan was expected to act in the Kannada remake of “Veeram”. However, after the Telugu remake of the film starring Pawan Kalyan flopped, he decided to drop the project and took up “Vedalam”. In the past, there was news that Puneeth Rajkumar will be acting in the film to be directed by Nanada Kishore. However, both dismissed the news.
“Vedalam” is a 2015 Tamil action comedy, written and directed by Siva, and produced by Aishwarya. Ajith Kumar, Shruti Haasan and Lakshmi Menon play the lead roles, with Ashwin Kakumanu, and Kabir Duhan Singh among others, appearing in supporting roles. Anirudh Ravichander composed the film’s music and background score, while Vetri and Ruben were the film’s cinematographer and editor respectively. The film began production in April 2015 and was released on 10 November 2015, coinciding with Diwali. The film was later dubbed in Hindi under the same name by Goldmines Telefilms in 2016. The film was a blockbuster upon release.
The remaining cast and crew of the Kannada version will be revealed soon.
