Raashi Khanna, who mainly features in Telugu and Tamil cinema, has begun shooting for the final leg of the Malayalam remake of the Bollywood hit Andhadun. The movie is tentatively titled Brahmam and is currently being shot in Kochi. In the remake, Raashi will portray the character essayed by Radhika Apte in the Hindi original. Prithiviraj Sukumaran plays the male protagonist, essayed by Ayushmann Khurrana.
“I was in awe of the storyline of ‘Andhadhun’ when I saw it. I wondered what it might have been like to be part of such an edgy film. It is surreal to be shooting for its Malayalam remake helmed by the one and only Ravi K. Chandran. We have begun shooting for the final leg of the film and each moment at the location is exciting. Not to mention, I have one of the most beautiful coastal cities in India to myself after the shoot!” Raashi was quoted as saying by IANS.
It was earlier reported that apart from Raashi and Prithviraj, Unni Mukundan and Mamta Mohandas have also been roped in to play the lead roles in the film. Surabhi Lakshmi, Ananya, Shankar, Jagadish, and Sudheer Karamana were cast for supporting roles. The movie is being directed by cinematographer-filmmaker Ravi K Chandran.
The Andhadhun remake marks Raashi’s debut in Malayalam. The actress will be stationed in Kochi for almost a week. Before this schedule Raashi finished the shoot of Raj and DK’s untitled web series starring Shahid Kapoor. She has enjoyed a string of successes with films such as Prati Roju Pandage, Venky Mama, Imaikkaa Nodigal, Tholi Prema and Jai Lava Kusa.
