Actor Nayanthara, who was last seen in home invasion thriller Kolayuthir Kaalam (2019), has joined hands with director Milind Rau for a project tiled Netrikann (2019), and its first look poster was unveiled on Sunday, 15 September.  

The film marks the debut of Nayanthara’s boyfriend Vignesh Shivn as producer. He will bankroll the project under the banner of Rowdy Pictures.

In the poster, the title is written in Braille. It is believed that the film is a remake of Korean thriller Blind (2011). Nayanthara plays a blind woman, who gives testimony in a hit-and-run case, and is then forced to confront the killer on her own.

Reportedly, Nayanthara will play a cadet at a police academy, who loses her eyesight after a car accident.  

While the makers are yet to confirm whether the film is a remake, the poster mentions Kross Pictures, the original producers of Blind, which will soon be remade in Hindi by Taapsee Pannu.

Speaking to CinemaExpress.com, Milind Rau said: "I cannot talk about the details of the plot now, but Netrikann will have Nayanthara in a never-before-seen-role. We are all excited about this project."

Meanwhile, Nayanthara has two more projects lined up. She has Vijay’s Bigil (2019) and megastar Chiranjeevi’s Syeraa Narasimha Reddy (2019) gearing up for release soon.

There are also reports that Nayanthara will soon sign the sequel to her political thriller, Aramm (2017). While she played a district collector in the first part, she will be seen in an even more powerful role in the sequel.

Some rumours hinted that Nayanthara will be seen playing a politician in Aramm 2. However, director Gopi Nainar refuted the rumours in his recent chat with CinemaExpress.com.

"Nayanthara won’t be playing a politician, but the film will continue to address important social issues. It will be more hard-hitting than the first part," he shared.
