If the latest reports are to be believed, Kamal Haasan’s upcoming Tamil-Telugu thriller Cheekati Rajyam is the remake of a French film ‘Nuit Blanche’ aka ‘Sleepless Night’. However, an official announcement is awaited.
The entire story unfolds in one night and deals with how a reputed policeman (essayed by Kamal Haasan) saves his son and his own reputation. The other interesting fact is the makers have roped in the stuntmen Gilles Conseil, Sylvain Gabet and Virgine Arnaud who worked for this French film.
Cheekati Rajyam recently wrapped a schedule in Hyderabad and a high-octane chase sequence on the outer ring road was shot. Directed by Rajesh Selva, the thriller features Trisha as Kamal Haasan’s love interest and Prakash Raj, Sampath Raj, Kishore, Madhu Shalini, Uma Riyaz and Yugi Sethu in prominent roles.
Titled Thoongaavanam in Tamil, Kamal Haasan himself is producing Cheekati Rajyam on Raj Kamal Films International production.
