In the biggest ever bidding war for the remake rights of that Telugusuperhit Bommarilu, has finally ended with our `Ilayathalapathy’ Vijaygrabbing it for producer `Swargachitra’ Appachan!
So the Bommarilu remake will be Vijay’s next film after Pokiri. This brilliantly packaged love story by debutant director Bhaskar featuringSiddharth and Genelia is a huge hit worldwide. The music by Devi SriPrasad is also a chartbuster.
Every young hero in Kollywood was after Telugu producer `Dil’ Raju topurchase the remake rights as nearly 20 screening of the film tookplace in Chennai. However, it was at a show held at the Four Frames Preview theatre by Siddharth for Trisha where Vijay, Vikram and Ravi Krishna first saw Bommarilu.
Vijay fell in love with the film and could not stop raving about itafter the show. He told Moviebuzz: “It is a cute film and thepresentation is brilliant. It’s refreshing to see such feel-good films”.
The buzz is that Bhaskar will be directing the Tamil version and itwill be a start-to-finish project. But who will plays the crucial roleof hero’s strict father, played by Prakash Raj in the original? Itwill be hard to replace Genelia the innocent and live-wire Hasini ofBommarilu with a new girl in Tamil!
