Andhathun won National awards for several categories in the 2019 National awards. Andhadhun is a 2018 Indian black comedy crime thriller film that was co-written and directed by Sriram Raghavan. The film starred Tabu, Ayushmann Khurrana and Radhika Apte, and tells the story of a blind piano player who unwittingly becomes embroiled in the murder of a former film actor.
Now, the movie is going to be remade in Tamil with Top Star Prashanth. Father of the actor Thiagarajan has bagged the Tamil remake rights of Andhadhun, and he is all set to cast his son Prashanth in the lead role of the film. They have remade Sriram Raghavan’s Johnny Gaddar as Johnny in tamil which turned out as a huge flop at box office.
Prashanth, who was once the leading actor in Tamil cinema, lost his market because of a series of continuous flops. According to reports, Prashanth is a trained piano player and his skills should come in hand to play the role of the protagonist in Andhadhun, who is a blind piano player.
