After remaking veteran director K Balachander's 'Nan Avan Illai', Selvah is
ready with the remake of the recent Bollywood hit 'Yes Boss'. 'Yes Boss', the
original had Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla in the lead with Aditya Pancholi
doing a supporting role. Says Selvah: 'It's a light-hearted comedy. Guru (Madhavan)
is a young ambitious man who will do anything to keep his boss Krishna (Abbas)
happy. Guru aspires to start his own advertising agency as promised by his boss
and everything goes awry till he meets and falls in love with a beautiful girl.
His boss also lays his eyes on the same girl, a model named Seema (Mamtha) and
desires to add her to his list of mistresses.
Seema, a middle-class hostelite, has dreams of making it to the top of the
glamorous world of fashion. While Guru begins to love Seema, she naively gets
taken in by Krishna's smooth talk and is drawn towards him. Guru's dilemma is
that he has to keep his boss happy to fulfill his ambition and yet he is aware
that his beloved is being conned into a false relationship', Selvah says.
'When I informed Shahrukh that I would be doing his 'Yes Boss' in Tamil, he
immediately suggested Madhavan's name for the lead role.
