Director Siddique was appreciated for addressing marital issues in a dignified manner in the Malayalam film Bhaskar The Rascal. Starring Mammootty and Nayanthara, the film hit the screens in 2015 and went on to become a blockbuster. The director is now wielding the megaphone for the Tamil version of Bhaskar The Rascal.
Titled as Bhaskar Oru Rascal in Tamil, the film is on the verge of completion with just a few scenes to be shot. A source in the know reveals, “Majority of the talkie portions are almost completed and the entire team is heading to Maldives for a song shoot. After completing it, we would only be left with minor patch work.”
The Tamil version of Bhaskar Oru Rascal boasts an ensemble cast including Arvind Swami, Amala Paul, Baby Nainika and Master Raghavan in the lead roles. It has also been speculated that director Siddique might also be working on the Hindi remake as well. The source also adds, “He might direct the Hindi version as soon as he finishes Bhaskar Oru Rascal. Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt seems to be the frontrunner for the lead role.”
