The official Telugu remake of Sriram Raghavan's hit Andhadhun (2018) has been titled Maestro. The film's makers unveiled the title on the occasion of leading man Nithiin’s birthday today. The film is being directed by Merlapaka Gandhi.

In the poster for Maestro, Nithiin is seen walking on a bloodied piano as a blind man, wearing dark glasses and carrying a white cane. He is wearing a black T-shirt, grey blazer and distressed blue denims.

The first glimpse of Nithiin’s character from the movie will be unveiled this evening.

Nithiin will reprise Ayushmann Khurrana’s role as the blind musician who gets embroiled in a murder mystery. Nabha Natesh will play the role played by Radhika Apte in the original while Tamannaah Bhatia will step into the shoes of the character essayed by Tabu.

Not long ago, it was rumoured that Ramya Krishnan was approached with the offer to play Tabu’s character. However, the talks never progressed and the makers went ahead with Bhatia. According to a recent statement issued by the makers, the actress was thrilled to take up the role with negative shades.

Maestro has music by Mahati Sagar while Hari K Vedanth will crank the camera.

Nithiin recently had two releases. Check (2021), which was his first release of the year, bombed at the box office. But his latest, Rang De (2021), which is a romantic comedy co-starring Keerthy Suresh, is doing exceptionally well.

Andhadhun's Telugu remake rights were acquired for Rs3.5 crore by Nithiin’s home banner Shresth Movies, which is managed by his father.

The young star has two more projects in his kitty.
