Directed by R Kannan, the film 'Settai' is a remake of Bollywood blockbuster 'Delhi Belly' starring Arya, Santhanam, Premgi, Hansika Motwani and Anjali. The film is based on the original 'Dehli Belly' but will roll sans the offensive dialogues as the makers are keen in delivering a family laugh riot.
'Settai' is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures. 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. 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, Sources say.
The filming began shooting in Chennai on May 7, 2012. The film is scheduled to be released in December, 2012. The remaining cast members are: Naseer, Suja Varunee and Ali.
