Ashok Selvan's Oh My Kadavule is one of the most profitable and successful films of this year that also earned the love and support of the Tamil audience. The film was directed by debutant Ashwath Marimuthu and produced by Abinaya Selvam's Happy High Pictures, in association with Dilli Babu's Axess Film Factory. Oh My Kadavule featured Ritika Singh and Vani Bhojan as the female leads and the performances of all the lead actors received a positive response. The film was praised for its refreshing concept, engaging screenplay and neatly packaged emotions. The interesting fantasy element also worked in the favour of the movie.

Following the success of Oh My Kadavule, the film’s Telugu remake rights were acquired by popular production house, PVP Cinemas. It was also revealed that actor Vishwak Sen of HIT fame will play the lead, reprising Ashok Selvan’s role. Some of Vishwak Sen's other notable films include Vellipomakey, Ee Nagaranikki Emaindhi, Falaknuma Das, etc. National award winning director Tharun Bhascker (of Pelli Choopulu fame) was revealed to pen the Telugu dialogues for the film and his addition came as a strong boosting factor.

Following that, the film was officially launched this morning (December 28) at Hyderabad and it has been announced that director Ashwath Marimuthu who helmed the original, will direct the remake as well. This untitled film will be bankrolled by PVP Cinema in association with Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations. It is indeed interesting and appreciable to see the producers roping in the original filmmaker to recreate the film. The shooting of the film is planned to begin from the end of February 2021. We are yet to know the details about the female leads.

Notably, this is director Ashwath's debut in Telugu cinema and he is a happy man about it. Taking to his official Twitter page, Ashwath wrote, "Glad to share that the Official Telugu remake of #OhMyKadavule with @VishwakSenActor under @PVPCinema in association with @SVC_official has launched formally today with a pooja. @TharunBhasckerD has done the dialogues.
