Sivakarthikeyan seems to be seriously eyeing the Japan market as his next film is ready to release there. Tamil romantic-comedy Remo is set to hit the screens in the Land of the Rising Sun on October 8.
The makers have reportedly announced that the movie is being released with subtitles in Japan. The movie will be played in Aeon Ebina and Skip City from October 8, and Kawaguchi and Aeon Nagoyachaya from October 9.
The Japan market opened up for Tamil films due to Rajinikanth's Muthu, which was released as Dancing Maharaja in Japanese language. Following its success, many filmmakers have released Kollywood films either dubbed or with subtitles.
The first movie of Sivakarthikeyan to be released in Japan was Kaaki Sattai. Other notable Tamil releases to be released in the country in the recent past are Sethupathi, Thoonga Vanam, 10 Endrathukulla, Uttama Villain (Tokyo release), Iru Suttru (Tokyo Film Festival), Anegan, Lingaa, among others. However, Rajinikanth continues to be a popular star in Japan.
Coming to Remo, it is a romantic-comedy directed by Bhagyaraj Kannan and produced by RD Raja. The film has Anirudh Ravichander's music, PC Sreeram's cinematography and Ruben's editing.
Keerthy Suresh is the female lead in the film, which has Sathish, KS Ravikumar, Saranya Ponvannan, Rajendran, Yogi Babu, Aadukalam Naren and others in supporting roles.
