On Monday, three days after Mahesh Babu’s Pokiri, a Telugu film was declared a super hit by Andhra trade, our ‘Ilayathalapathi’ Vijay has come forward to do the remake of yet another film! Remember that his next project is a remake of Bangaram another Telugu film releasing today (May 3).
South India’s leading film financier and producer Satyamurthi Ramesh has grabbed the remake rights of Pokiri for Vijay. Two years back, Ramesh had got Vijay’s dates to do a film to be directed by Selvaraghavan. Now the latest we hear is that Selva-Vijay project has been postponed and as of now, the actor will be doing the Pokiri remake for Ramesh.
It looks like after Vijay completes ‘Swargachitra’ Appachan’s Thangam (Bangaram remake), he will start work on Pokiri remake with a well known Tamil director. Vijay still believes that remakes work wonders for him like Ghilli (remake of Mahesh Babu’s Okkadu) and even Tirupachi which was inspired from Mahesh’s Arjun.
In a way, Pokiri seems to be an ideal film for remake as it is a masala entertainer for the masses.
