The remake rights have been bought by Rockline Venkatesh and the film is expected to go on floors by August, reports S Saraswathi.

Sairat

Nagraj Manjule's Sairat, the first Marathi film to have grossed Rs 100 crore (rs 1 billion), will soon be remade in all four South Indian languages.

The remake rights have been bought by Rockline Venkatesh.

Starring Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar in the lead, Sairat is a heart-wrenching tale of inter-caste relationships and honour killing.

The film opened to critical acclaim and went on to become a huge commercial success.

Venkatesh may jointly produce the Southern remakes with the makers of Sairat.

The casting will begin in a few weeks and the film is expected to go on floors in August.

Fans love Nayanthara's new look in Iru Mugan

Iru Mugan

Nayanthara and Vikram have teamed up for the first time in director Anand Shankar's science fiction thriller Iru Mugan.

After a hectic schedule in Malaysia and Thailand, the couple is currently shooting in Kashmir.

The makers have released an image from the film and fans are totally loving Nayanthara's new look -- short hair and blonde highlights.

The pretty actress is said to be playing an undercover agent. Vikram is essaying a double role in the film.

Nithya Menen, who was recently seen in Suriya's super hit 24, has a significant role in the film.

Produced by Shibu Thameen, Iru Mugan has music by Harris Jayaraj.

Anand Shankar's previous film Arima Nambi was a huge hit, so expectations are high from Iru Mugan.
