As per a report by Telegu Cinema, Ramya Krishna, Nadia, and Anasuya were first approached by the makers before they zeroed in on Tamannaah.
Pinkvillareported that originally Tabu was approached to reprise her role from the original but the veteran actress reportedly quoted a huge remuneration. Sreshth Movies has bought Telugu remake rights of Andhadhun for Rs 3.5 crore.
Touted as a black comedy crime thriller, Andhadhun was directed by Sriram Raghavan and starred Tabu, Khurrana, and Apte in pivotal roles. The film completed a 60-day run in China, and became the third-highest grosser import from India, after Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Secret Superstar.
