Says Ajit Andhare, COO – Viacom18 Motion Pictures, “SPECIAL 26 is an intelligent entertainer. The film is based on true events which makes it universally appealing across languages. We're confident that our film will excite audiences in the South the same way that the original material did.”
 
SPECIAL 26 is based on a real life group of con artists who pulled off many clever robberies during the 1980s, and robbed famous businessmen and politicians by pretending to be the CBI or Income tax officers. Under the pretext of conducting raids, the con artists would take away all the black money hoarded by them. The film starred Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, and Manoj Bajpai in lead roles.
 
Throwing light on bringing this blockbuster to the South, actor, director and Producer Thiagarajan from Staar Movies said, “This time I grabbed the golden opportunity of remaking SPECIAL26 in all four south Indian languages (Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam & Kannada) and I will have the honor of directing this mammoth movie in all four South Indian languages that has won accolades, acclaim and awards. Also box-office rewards!”
