Prabhu Dheva, Tamannaah Bhatia and Bhumika Chawla are teaming up for the Hindi remake of the yet-to-release Tamil film Kolaiyuthir Kaalam. The Tamil version stars South actress Nayanthara. Chakri Toleti, who has directed Tamil and Telugu films, makes his Bollywood debut with this film.

Confirming the news, Prabhu Dheva says, “When I heard the script I was taken aback, it was such a different role from what you expect from me. For the first time I play the antagonist.“

Producer Vashu Bhagnani points out that his first film, Coolie No.1 (1995) was a remake of a Tamil film, Chinna Mapillai. “Today, after 21 years, we are again remaking a Tamil film. After a handful of comedy films, we want to explore different genres and this thriller excited all of us. Given Tamannaah's chemistry with Prabhu Dheva and a brilliant script, we are on a good wicket. Shooting has already begun in London.“
