Malayur Mambattiyan was a turning point in the career of Thiagarajan, and he is remaking the film with his son, Prashanth. Meera Jasmine and Mumaith Khan will be playing the roles originally done by Saritha and Jayamalini. Music is by Thaman and one of the hit tracks from Ilaiyaraja's original soundtrack will be remixed for the contemporary version.
The song Kattu Vazhi Pora Ponne was a rage back in the day, and Silambarasan jumped at the chance to lend his voice for this immortal tune which is also a big favorite of his. He was very excited during the recording and would keep shaking a leg to the catchy beats. He said that it will be a massive hit along the lines of 'Where is the party'.
