Catherine Tresa has been roped in to play one of the female leads in Sundar C’s next film starring Simbu. A remake of the 2013 Pawan Kalyan starrer Attarintiki Daredi, the crew has already completed shooting the first schedule in Georgia.
Tresa, who has finished shooting for Neeya 2, featuring Jai and Raai Laxmi alongside her, joins hands with Sundar C after starring in this year’s Kalakalappu 2. Incidentally, the movie happens to be the most recent release for both of them.
In the new film, Tresa will reportedly be essaying the role of Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s character from the original while Megha Akash will play the role Pranitha Subhesh had.
The remake rights for the Trivikram-directed Attarintiki Daredi was bought by Lyca Productions in July this year. The story of the film largely revolves around a grandson’s promise to his grandfather to reunite him with his estranged daughter.
