Pretty singer-actress Shruti Haasan, daughter of lagendary actor Kamal Haasan , will be the heroine in the remake of her father’s 1979 Telugu super hit Sigappu Rojakkal , which was directed by Bharathi Raja with Sridevi as heorine.
Now the remake will be be directed by Bharathi Raja’s son Manoj, and will have Shakthi as the hero . The initial discussions are on. It is noteworthy that Sigappu Rojakkal was remade into telugu as Yerra Gulabi and later remade in Japanese as Red Roses and in Hindi as Red Rose.
Meanwhile, after making her debut in films with last year’s Luck (Hindi) which became a critical and commercial flop, Shruti Haasan is now busy with her second film Yodha (Telugu) opposite Siddharth . Yodha, which was launched at a glittering function in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad last year, is progressing at brisk pace under the direction of Prakash Kovelamudi (son of K. Raghavendra Rao).
