2017's Pa Paandi, a big hit in the Tamil film industry marked the directorial debut of the National award-winning actor and producer Dhanush, who also made a cameo appearance in the film. The movie which was co-written by director Subramania Siva is being remade in Kannada under the title Ambi Ninag Vayassaiytho and actress Sushasini Maniratnam was supposed to be reprising Revathi's character from the original. However, latest reports suggest that Suhasini has opted of the film owning to prior commitments and that the team is currently in talks with actress Ramya Krishnan and Khushboo to fill-in for her role.
The Kannada version is currently gearing up to shoot its second schedule and hopes to zero in on the actress before shooting. Ambi Ninag Vayassaiytho has actor-politician Ambareesh playing the role of Rajkiran while Kiccha Sudeep plays the role of Dhanush. The movie is directed by Gurudatta Ganiga and is a production venture of Sudeep's Kiccha Creations.
