It is well known that Universal actor Kamalhassan will be acting the male lead role in the Tamil remake of the Malayalam Super hit film Drishyam. However the heroine of the Tamil version is yet to be finalized.
This has been the talk in Tinsel town since the day the news Kamal's association with the film broke out. Initially it was told that Meena who played the role to perfection in Malayalam and who is also doing the same role in the Teleugu version will be retained in Tamil as well. Later it was said that Nadhiya, one of the leading heroines of Tamil cinema in 1980's will be pairing up with Kamal for the first time in her career with this film. Another news item said that Simran will make a comeback with this film which will mark her third time pairing up with Kamal after her successful union with the veteran actor in the films Pammal.K.Sambandham and Panchathanthiram.
These talks were laid to rest since Uthama Villain, which will be Kamal's next film after Viswaroopam II just started rolling a few days back. But now the talks have reemerged with news stating that Kamal wishes to cast his live-in partner and former heroine Gauthami in the role. It is said that Gauthami is one of the celebrities who went gung ho about Drishyam after watching it and she will be happy to accept the role if offered.
This is only report on talks doing the rounds about the possible heroine of Drishyam Tamil and we cannot be certain unless an official word confirms the name of the lucky lady pairing up with the Padma Bhushan actor.
