Vijay is to pair with Asin again in “Pokiri”, a remark of the Telugu hit “Pokiri”. The same pair had earlier given the huge success film “Sivakasi”.

Vijay was looking for a Bollywood heroine like Katrina Kaif but he has finally chosen Asin to play opposite him in “Pokiri”. She has become selective about signing films and is now doing a number of commercials.

The film is to be directed by Prabhu Deva. This is the first Tamil film to be directed by Prabhu Deva even though he has directed two Telugu movies. The grapevine has it that directors Vishnuvardhan and Lawrence were approached first, but both of them declined.

Mani Sharma, who did the original Telugu film, will be scoring the music for this Tamil remake also, it is learnt. Leading financier and producer Ramesh will be producing this film which will have Prakash Raj playing the villain as in the original.

Shooting of ”Pokiri” is set to start on June 1st and the film is expected to be ready for Deepavali release this year.
