Actor-cum-producer Sachiin Joshi has acquired the remake rights of the super-hit film "Temper". The Junior NTR and Kajal Aggarwal starrer will be remade in Hindi and Tamil.

In response to one of his followers on Twitter, Sachiin Joshi has confirmed the news of remaking "Temper" in Hindi and Telugu, but denied rumours about him playing lead role in them. He responded to another follower and revealed that he is in talks with a big Bollywood actor for the lead role.

"Temper" has been produced by Bandla Ganesh Babu, who has earlier produced Sachiin Joshi's last outing "Nee Jathaga Nenundali", a remake of "Aashiqui 2".

It is reported that Ganesh had taken financial help during the production of some of his recent ventures. Since he could not repay the money, he has given the rights of "Temper" to Sachiin, in lieu of the debt.

"Sachin has funded money to Bandla Ganesh for Ram Charan-starrer Govindudu Andarivadele and even Sachin splurged a bomb for his Telugu remake of Aashiqui 2 to Ganesh. However, Ganesh failed to return the finance amount on time leaving Sachin furious," Gulte quoted a source as saying.

"Finally, with his latest offing Temper being successful, Ganesh has handed over the Tamil and Hindi remake rights to Sachiin as part of compensation to money he owed to him. Sachin too happy to bag the remake rights. Meanwhile, Ganesh is going to do another film with Sachin for the balance amount," the source added.

"Temper" has got superb response from viewers. It has collected ₹35+ crore nett at the worldwide box office in the first week. On 18 February, Sachiin Joshi tweeted: "The #temper recoveries so far would be about 42 crores..expected to do around 60 Cr plus in 2 weeks."
