Now, Tamil superstar Dhanush, who is said to be very impressed with the Dulquer - Parvathy starrer, has bagged the Tamil remake rights of the movie. The remake version of the film will be reportedly produced by the actor's home production banner Wunderbar Films.

Earlier, reports had that Dhanush will remake the blockbuster movie "Premam" in Tamil, but after the Malayalam version got tremendous response in Tamil Nadu, the actor is believed to have dropped his plan to remake it. Director Alphonse Puthren's "Premam" starring Nivin Pauly, Anupama Parameshwaran, Sai Pallavi and Madonna Sebastian in the lead roles has already completed 200 days of its run at Sathyam Cinemas Multiplex in Chennai.  

Meanwhile, "Charlie" is being produced under the banner of Finding Cinemas by director Martin Prakkat, Joju George and Shebin Becker. Reports also suggest that "Charlie" is the first fastest Malayalam movie to cross a Rs 50 lakh margin at the Kerala box office beating the records of Prithviraj Sukumaran, Indrajith Sukumaran and Jayasurya's comical entertainer "Amar Akbar Anthony".
