Actresses Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh have been roped in to play key roles in the yet-untitled Telugu remake of Andhadhun (2018), its makers announced on Saturday. In a statement, it was also confirmed that shooting for the project will begin this November.

The statement added that Bhatia will play Tabu’s role from the original where Nabha will step into the shoes of Radhika Apte.

Nithiin will take up Ayushmann Khurrana’s role as the blind musician who gets embroiled in a murder mystery.

Not long ago, it was rumoured that Ramya Krishnan was approached with the offer to play Tabu’s character. However, the talks never materialised and the makers went ahead with other options.

As per the statement, Bhatia is thrilled to take up a role with negative shades. The rest of the cast will be finalised and announced soon.

The remake will have music by Mahati Sagar while Hari K Vedanth will crank the camera.

Nithiin was last seen in Telugu romantic comedy Bheeshma (2020), which also starred Rashmika Mandanna. Bheeshma marked the return of veteran Kannada actor to the Telugu industry after 27 years.

Produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi and presented by PDV Prasad, Bheeshma also starred Naresh VK, Kalyani Natarajan, Raghu Babu and Sampath in supporting roles. Mahati Swara Sagar was roped in as the music composer for this film.

Nithiin also has Rang De and a yet-untitled film with filmmaker Chandra Sekhar Yeleti in the pipeline. Rang De, which will be shot by veteran lensman PC Sreeram and stars Keerthy Suresh, is likely to skip theatres and release on an OTT platform soon.
