Director Vincent Selva who had earliermade films like ‘Priyamudan’, ‘Youth’ (both Vijay starrers) and ‘Iraniyan’, may remake the cult thriller ‘Oomai Vizhigal’, in which Vijayakanth was the hero.
But Vincent Selva said’ “I am going to direct a fresh script and I felt that the title Oomai Vizhigal will be apt for it. Then I approached Aabavanan (the man behind the original version) with the idea, he did not allow me to use the original title due to some reasons.”
Selva who is the mentor of many filmmakers like Mysskin, adds: “Hence I am planning to start the movie under the new title Moongil Vizhigal. It will be a thriller with commercial aspects. The project will hit the floors very soon.”
Selva revealed that Sarath Kumar will be roped in for an important role and fresher Karthik is the lead protagonist. Two new girls from Pune and Kerala are the heroines. Santhanam and Thambi Ramaiah are also acting in the film.
