2018 has been a great year for Ayushmann Khurrana as his suspense thriller ‘Andhadhun’ became one of the biggest Box-office openers of the year. The film which was released back in the month of October is still enjoying a successful run at the box-office and now we have heard that down in the South industry, the movie is being made.

The actor Tweeted and gave his blessings to the South actor. “Go for it machaan!” he wrote.
Several fans responded to Siddharth’s question with casting suggestions. Many suggested Ramya Krishnan and Simran Bagga to take on Tabu’s role, and others pointed out that since both Tabu and Radhika Apte have experience in the south Indian film industry, they should return for the remakes as well.
AndhaDhun has been named as several critics’ best film of 2018. It tells a twisted story of a blind pianist caught in a murder mystery involving a rich housewife and a corrupt cop. It is one of two films to star Ayushmann that have gone on to make more than Rs 100 crore at the box office this year, the other being the family drama, Badhaai Ho.
