Chennai: Actress Lavanya Tripathi has been signed opposite actor-composer G.V. Prakash Kumar in the upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy “100% Kadhal”, a Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster “100% Love”, its director said.
“Lavanya is on board. We were in talks with a few actresses (including Hebah Patel) but we felt Lavanya looks like how Tamannaah was in 2011. Hence, we went ahead with her. She will play a college student and has already begun shedding weight to play her part,” director Chandramouli told IANS.
Naga Chaitanya and Tamannaah Bhatia starred in the original, which was a blockbuster.
“100% Kadhal” will be predominantly shot in London.
“Around 10-15 per cent of the film will be shot in India. The rest will be shot in London,” he said.
The film also stars Nasser, Livingston and Sathish.
