First Look: Settai, the Tamil remake of 'Delhi Belly'
The film is a remake of Bollywood blockbuster 'Delhi Belly'.
UTV Motion Pictures' forthcoming offering 'Settai' features Arya, Santhanam, Premgi, Hansika Motwani and Anjali.
It's based on the original film but will roll sans the offensive dialogues as the makers are keen in delivering a family laugh riot.
The Tamil comedy is directed by R Kannan.
The filming began in Chennai on May 7, 2012.
The film is scheduled to be released in December, 2012.
The cast members are: Arya, Santhanam, Premji Amaren, Anjali, Hansika Motwani, Nassar, Suja Varunee and Ali.
R Kannan had earlier directed Jayam Kondaan and Kanden Kadhalai.
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.
