Latest buzz in Telugu film industry is that Power Star Pawan Kalyan might do the Telugu remake of recently-released Tamil film "Kaththi."
"Kaththi," starring Vijay and Samantha, hit the screens on 22 October and took fantastic openings on the first day of its release. The film minted over ₹23 crore on the opening day at the worldwide box office. It created a record in Tamil Nadu by becoming highest day one grosser, surpassing "Endhiran" collections.
The Vijay starrer has continued to perform well in the following days owing to long holiday. The film is expected to surpass the ₹50 crore mark soon.
Speculations are rife that "Kaththi" could be remade in Telugu and Pawan Kalyan might be reprising Vijay's role.
The Telugu dubbing rights of the film has been acquired by Madhu and the film was slated to hit the screens on 31 October. According to latest reports, "Kaththi" dubbed version is unlikely to release as scheduled.
Following the stupendous success of "Kaththi" Tamil version, makers are reportedly planning to remake the film Telugu. It is being said that director VV Vinayak might helm the project with Pawan in the lead. However, there is no official confirmation in this regard.
Pawan is currently busy with the shooting of "Gopala Gopala," co-starring Venkatesh and Shriya Saran. The film, a remake of the critically-acclaimed Hindi film "Oh My God," will have Pawan reprising Akshay's role as Lord Krishna. The satirical comedy is expected to be wrapped up soon and it is likely to hit the screens for Sankranti 2015.
After completing his portions for "Gopala Gopala," Pawan will begin shooting for "Gabbar Singh 2." The film, touted to be a sequel to "Gabbar Singh," will go on floors in November. Details about the film's cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
On the other hand, director Vinayak is likely to direct Akhil's (Nagarjuna-Amala's son) debut film. His name is also associated with Chiranjaeevi's 150th film, but an official announcement regarding the project is still awaited.
