The film Theri which had Vijay in the lead role was released two years ago. This was a superhit mass film which was directed by Atlee. Samantha and Amy Jackson donned the female lead roles. Moreover, Meena’s daughter Nainika donned an important role. G V Prakash had composed the music. The film produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu was released on 14th April 2016.
Now the film is being remade in Telugu. Ravi Teja will don the lead role while Catherine Teresa will be donning the female lead role. Mythri Movie Makers who produced the recent hit Telugu film Rangasthalam will be producing the film. The shooting of the film will commence once Ravi Teja completes the shooting of Amar Akbar Anthony.
Theri was dubbed in Telugu and released but this did not impress the Telugu audience.
