My Big Father is a Malayalam film which was released in 2009. This film is about the emotions between father who is a dwarf and the son who is normal. The father role was donned by the famous Malayalam comedy actor Pakru while Jayaram essayed the role of the son. Kanika paired with Jayaram. Mahesh P. Sreenivasan directed the film while Alex Paul has composed the music. Vipin Mohan has handled the camera.
Mahesh P. Sreenivasan who directed the superhit Malayalam film My Big Father is remaking this film in Tamil. Arrangements for this are going on in rapid pace. For the Pakru role, talks are being held with Kulla Mani and other dwarf actors but all of them, have comedy image. Hence Pakru who is also known in Tamil Nadu as a character actor will be made to act in the Tamil remake version. Dhanush or Vijay Sethupathi might don the Jayaram’s role.
Mahesh P. Sreenivasan while speaking about this said, “When the film was released in Malayalam many approached me for the remake rights. I did not sell it because I had the desire to direct a Tamil film. I have made some changes in the script to suit the Tamil audience, Pre-production works have begun. The official announcement will be soon made.”
