Prithviraj Sukumaran and Parvathy's "Ennu Ninte Moideen" has been doing roaring business in Kerala box office. The story, inspired from the real-life love story of Moideen and Kanchanamala, that took place in Kozhikode in the 1960s, will be remade in Tamil soon.
The remake version is also expected to have Prithviraj in the lead role and the film might go on floors in 2016.
Director RS Vimal informed the media about the decision during a press meet in Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday, 26 September that was also attended by actors Prithviraj, Tovino Thomas, and music director M Jayachandran.
"The decision to make the film in Tamil was made and I will be directing it. The story would be the same but, it will be reworked to suit the Tamil audience and it would involve a bigger budget," said Vimal, according to India Today.
It is expected that the Tamil version's scripting will be done by B Jeyamohan, who has earlier scripted Prithviraj-Siddharth starrer "Kaaviya Thalaivan". Oscar winner AR Rahman will compose the music.
The other cast and crew of the Tamil remake will be announced later.
