Vijay Sethupathi's latest movie "Sethupathi" has done well at the box office. The success of the film in Tamil has now paved way for its remake in Telugu and the buzz says that Venkatesh is likely to star in the Tollywood version.

A leading producer has acquired the Telugu remake rights of "Sethupathi," reports Behindwoods. It is said that he wants Venkatesh to enact Vijay Sethupathi's role of a cop. However, final talks are yet to happen and details about the project are expected to come out in the coming days.

Venkatesh is currently starring in the remake of Madhavan-starrer "Irudhi Suttru," the Tamil version of Bollywood film "Saala Khadoos." It has to be seen whether the Telugu star is willing to accept another Tamil remake in succession.

"Sethupathi" is a realistic cop story sans regular cinematic elements. An honest police officer goes through lots of difficulties after he starts investigating the death of a cop. This is the basic storyline of the flick and the execution has made the difference.

The good storyline backed by strong performance of the lead characters have impressed the viewers. The movie has Remya Nambeesan in the female lead role. It is written and directed by Arun Kumar of "Pannaiyarum Padminiyum" fame and produced by Shan Sutharasan.

The Tamil film has Nivas K Prasanna's music, Dinesh Krishnan's cinematography and S Sreekar Prasad's editing. It was released Feb.19 and opened to positive reviews. In the first weekend, the film made around Rs 3.5 crore and it performed well in its second weekend too.
