Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan are being considered for Telugu director Koratala Siva's blockbuster film "Srimanthudu".

Siva is set to direct the Hindi version of the film and the buzz is that these two actors might star in the film.

Though Hrithik's name has been making rounds since long, Varun is also now rumoured to be considered for the role.

"Srimanthudu" turned out to be a superhit film which features Mahesh Babu and Shruti Haasan in lead roles.

Earlier, there were reports that Hrithik was quite happy after watching the film and he wanted bit changes in the climax for the Hindi remake.

"The movie (Srimanthudu) was screened for Hrithik recently and he liked the plot. However, he felt that the climax bit needs a few changes to suit the Hindi audience. They are examining his request," a source told Bangalore Mirror.

There were rumours that Eros will produce the film with another Mumbai-based banner.

On the other hand, director Siva has got a major share of the rights of the film, which has done a business of Rs 150 crore.

"Siva (director) had 50 per cent in the rights, Eros had 25 per cent and the producers had 25 per cent. But now the director has got all the rights of the film and he will be directing the film in Hindi also," Deccan Chronicle quoted an insider as saying.

"Right now there are three different producers wanting to make the film with Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and Varun Dhawan respectively. Apparently, David Dhawan has also seen the film twice for Varun," the insider further added.

Currently, both the actors – Hrithik and Varun – are busy with their respective film projects. However when contacted, David Dhawan told Deccan Chronicle, "Yes I have seen seen the film and I loved it. Mahesh Babu is so good in it. But I just feel that Varun is too young to play that role."
