Vishal on Wednesday released the teaser of his upcoming film Ayogya. The teaser has been cut to introduce the flawed protagonist, who wears his depleted sense of morality as a badge of honour.
Director Venkat Mohan has written and directed Ayogya, which is the official Tamil remake of Telugu hit Temper. The original film was written by Vakkantham Vamsi and Puri Jagannath had helmed it.
In 2015, Temper gave a much-needed break to Jr NTR, who was reeling under consecutive box office failures. The tale about a morally bankrupt cop, who suffers an attack of conscience and decides to uphold justice in his own questionable way, clicked with the audience. It infused Tarak’s career with a lot of fresh energy and since inspired several remakes.
The film was remade in Hindi as Simmba by director Rohit Shetty. Ranveer Singh reprised Tarak’s role in the film, which became one of the top-grossing Bollywood films of 2018.
Ayogya, also starring Raashi Khanna, R Parthiepan and KS Ravikumar, is set to hit the screens in April.
