The shooting for the Tamil remake of 'Delhi Belly', starring Arya and Santhanam in lead roles, got a kick start in Chennai on Monday (May 7). At present, the working title is 'Settai' and a final decision on the title will be taken soon.
Two sets, one resembling a five star hotel and another as a bachelor room, have been erected at Binny Mills at Meenambakkam, where the shooting is taking place at present. The schedule is expected to go on for a couple of weeks.
Being produced by UTV Motion Pictures, 'Settai' is helmed by Kannan of 'Jayamkondan' and 'Kanden Kadhalai' fame. Hansika Motwani and Anjali are playing the heroines, while veteran Nasser is doing a role with negative shades. This film also stars Premgi Amaren in a pivotal role.
According to sources, Arya, who had earlier worked with UTV for 'Vettai', took personal interest to remake 'Delhi Belly' in Tamil. His chemistry with Santhanam, which follows the comedy caper 'Boss Engira Baskaran', is expected to work wonders in this new project too.
