It looks like Prashanth's upcoming film Andhagan is all set to hit screens in July. The film, which is a remake of the Hindi black comedy crime thriller Andhadhun, is directed and bankrolled by veteran actor Thiagarajan. The remake has Prashanth, Simran and Priya Anand in the lead with an ensemble supporting cast including Karthik, Samuthirakani, Urvashi, Yogi Babu, KS Ravikumar, Vanitha Vijayakumar, Manobala, Besant Ravi, Leela Samson, Mohan Vaidya, Lakshmi Pradeep and Poovaiyar to name a few. 

Music for the film is by Santhosh Narayanan, cinematography is by Ravi Yadav and editing is by Sathish Suriya. Thiagarajan says that the film has been made in a way to suit the taste of the Tamil audience and that the Tamil version has been presented in a new manner. The director in an interview to a YouTube channel said that he was not bothered whether the film made 3 crore or 300 crore and this whole intention was to make a good film. He added that the first single from En Kadhal sung by Sid Siram has been doing extremely well and the second song Yosichi Yosichi, sung by Haricharan, too, was well received by fans. And that it was a sign that the necessary buzz was building up around the film.

Prashanth plays a blind pianist in the film who gets embroiled in a murder. Andhagan also brings together the two top stars of the '90s- Simran and Prashanth- for the fifth time. They had earlier teamed up for Kannethirey Thondrinaal, Jodi, Parthen Rasithen and Thamizh. Though the film was initially launched with Mohan Raja as the director, he was replaced by JJ Frederick before the film's producer Thiagarajan himself decided to take on the mantle of direction.

The Hindi version, Andhadhun had Tabu, Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte, Anil Dhawan, Ashwini Kalsekar, Mana Vij and Zakir Hussain as part of the star cast. The film was remade in Malayalam as Bhramam with Prithviraj, Mamta Mohandas and Raashi Khanna playing the leads and did well at the box office.
