The antagonist in megastar Chiranjeevi’s 150th film has been decided --Tarun Arora. The actor was last seen in Tamil thriller Kanithan.

“Tarun has been officially signed on. He’s expected to start shooting in a few days,” a source from the film’s unit said.

Known for his brief role in Jab We Meet, Tarun made a smashing comeback in Kanithan earlier this year.

“Director Vinayak loved his performance in the Tamil film and immediately brought him on board,” a source said.

In Vijay-starrer Kaththi, Neil Nitin Mukesh played the baddie, and he was also approached for the Telugu remake. However, he declined the offer. The film is the official remake of Tamil film Kaththi.

The yet-untitled remake marks Chiranjeevi’s 150th film and it’s being produced by Ram Charan.
