"Guru" is an official remake of Sudha Kongara Prasad's bilingual movie titled "Saala Khadoos" in Hindi and "Irudhi Suttru" in Tamil. Having released in cinema halls on Jan. 29, both the versions were received well by the audience everywhere and have made decent collection at the worldwide box office.
Written by Sudha Kongara Prasad, Prabhu Selvaraj (Madhavan) is a talented boxer, but he fails to make it big due to the dirty politics in the boxing association. He turns a coach for the women's boxing teams ten years later. How he trains a roadside fish seller, Madhi (Ritika Singh), and makes her a champion with poor infrastructure forms the crux of the story.
S Sashikanth, who bankrolled "Irudhi Suttru," is producing its Telugu remake, while Sudha Kongara Prasad directs the film "Guru." Victory Venkatesh is seen playing the lead role originally played by R Madhavan, Ritika Singh essays the role that she played in the original versions.
After Rana released the first look, Ritika Singh took to her Facebook to confirm her role in "Guru." She posted: "I am ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with the first look of the Telugu remake of #SaalaKhadoos and #IrudhiSuttru. This film is going to be called #Guru And it's also my fourth film :') I'm really excited to start filming for Guru ❤️ And I think #Venkatesh Sir looks What do you guys think about the first look?"
