Prakash Raj in Thillu Mullu remake

That Mirchi Shiva is playing the lead role in the remake of yesteryear hit Thillu Mullu is no more news.

The latest update about the project is that Prakash Raj has been roped in to play the role that was made memorable by veteran actor Thengai Srinivasan.

Also, it is said Kovai Sarala will do the character which was beautifully enacted in the original by Sowcar Janaki. Meanwhile, a hunt is on for the heroine.

The new version will be directed by Badri, who earlier wielded the megaphone for Veerappu, a Sundar C starrer. Vendar Movies will produce the film.
