Tamil actor-producer Vishal Krishna will star in the yet-untitled Tamil remake of Telugu hit Temper, the shooting of which will begin later this year. He is currently busy shooting for Tamil thriller Thupparivaalan, directed by Mysskin.

“The project was originally rumoured to feature actor Simbu. However, Vishal has been officially brought on board. He will start work on it as soon as he completes Mysskin’s Thupparivaalan,” said a source.

The source added that Vishal really liked the film and felt he could do justice to the lead character, originally played by actor Jr NTR. Producer Tagore Madhu will fund this project, which is most likely to be helmed by stunt choreographer-turned-director Anal Arasu.

Kajal Aggarwal, who played the leading lady in the original, has been retained for the Tamil version. Temper, which was received well by audiences and critics alike, was about a corrupt, ruthless police officer and how an incident turned his life topsy-turvy.
