Director T. K. Rajeev Kumar is going to remake the 1978 film Rathinirvedam and the shooting for the same will start on September 3 at Nilambur in Kerala. Suresh Kumar is producing this film under the banner Revathy Kakamandir. The film deals with a very sensitive issue where a teenage boy falls for a woman much older than him. In the original movie, actress Jayabharathi played the woman with titular features. The confused teenager was played by actor Krishnachandran. The steamy scenes in the movie were shot very aesthetically by director Bharathan. The remake version of the Malayalam movie will have some newcomers in vital roles. The makers are still searching for an actress, who can justify the role played by Jayabharathi.
