Bollywood's heartthrob Hrithik Roshan might essay the lead role in the Hindi remake of blockbuster film "Srimanthudu", which starred Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu.
Not only that, "Srimanthudu" director Koratala Siva might also make his Bollywood debut with the Hindi remake of the film. The latest report suggest that the writer-director Siva is likely to direct the Hindi version of the film.
The buzz is that Hrithik has already seen the film and he has liked the plot as well, but he asked the makers to make a few changes in the climax.
"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.
And director Siva will be working on the climax scene to change it according to the Hindi audience.
"Srimanthudu director has 50 per cent stake in the Hindi remake rights while the Eros International has the rest," Sakshipost quoted a source as saying.
Siva will start working on the Hindi remake after finishing the shooting of "Janatha Garage" starring Jr. NTR, which is likely to start next year.
Apart from Hrithik, his father is also likely to act in the Hindi version of "Srimanthudu". Rakesh Roshan might play the role of Jagapathi Babu, who acted as Mahesh Babu's father in the Telugu version.
In other news, Hrithik is currently shooting the last schedule of the period drama "Mohenjo Daro". The actor is in Bhuj, Gujarat, to wrap up Ashutosh Gowariker's "Mohenjo Daro".
