Vasanthiyum Lakshmiyum Pinne Njanum which was released in 1999 by filmmaker Vinayan earned much acclaim for the lead hero Kalabhavan Mani. This movie was later remade in Tamil as Kasi with Vikram in the lead role and later in Telugu and Kannada as well. Now the latest we hear 10 years after its release is that the movie is to be made in Sinhalese as Soorya by the Indian born Srilankan director Niranjan.
Niranjan who plans to release the movie in Srilanka and Europe is very clear about his choice as he says, "The reason I chose the film was because it proved to be successful in all its adaptations. We hope it would add to the commercial value of the movie. Since we get latest facilities in Chennai, I chose to do the post-production work in Chennai."
While Ilayaraja will score the music for the movie the director Niranjan and Srilankan actress Kanchana Mendis will form the lead pair. Plans are being made to shoot most parts of the movie Soorya in the picturesque locations of Srilankan, save for a song sequence which is to be shot in Switzerland.
