"It's true that I'm playing the lead in the Tamil remake of 'Jolly LLB'. We start shooting from August 20," Udhayanidhi told IANS.
The rest of the cast for the yet-untitled remake will be finalised soon.
Ahmed and Udhayanidhi were supposed to start working on Tamil romantic-drama "Idhayam Murali".
"We've decided to put that project ('Idhayam Murali') on hold, and start the remake soon," Udhayanidhi said.
