'Theri' villain Mahendran to play Chachan's role in the Tamil remake of 'Maheshinte Prathikaaram'

Acclaimed filmmaker J Mahendran is once again turning an actor for Priyadarshan's Tamil remake of 'Maheshinte Prathikaaram'. Mahendran who played the villain in Vijay's 'Theri' will reprise the role of Chachan (Mahesh's father) in the movie. The shoot for the movie is currently in progress at Thenkasi. Udhaynidhi Stalin, Namitha Pramod and Parvati Nair are playing the pivotal roles in the Tamil version while Samuthirakani will reprise the role of the antagonist in the movie. The Tamil version of ''Maheshinte Prathikaaram' which is slightly tweaked from the original to suit the Tamil audience, is yet to get a name.
