“Thani Oruvan” is Tamil thriller directed by Mohan Raja. This film received many applause for its screenplay and direction. The director earlier has shown this movie to Mahesh Babu and Ram Charan. Since Mahesh committed himself to not doing remakes, Charan was finalized to do the lead role that was done by Ravi in the original film. Kajal Aggarwal was recently roped into this project, and will play the lead heroine opposite Charan.

Now, rumors have that “King” Nagarjuna is keen in playing the negative character in this film. Arvind Swamy played the villain character called “Siddharth” in the original film. His character had many variations throughout the film, and many were impressed the way he played the role of villain.

Nagarjuna experimenting with his character isn’t a new one. Since Annamayya, he was seen in many challenging roles. “Ramadasu” “Shirdi Sai” and his latest “Oopiri” are all mixed characters in his film career. Since Nag didn’t attempt any negative character or was seen in as Villian, this film will be a tailor-made one for him, says Tollywood.

Earlier, Rana was considered in the role of Arvind Swamy, but no updates about him featuring in this remake were said. Surender Reddy is rumoured of directing this remake. Ram Charan and his team also thought of roping Arvind Swamy but dropped their later idea. At one point of time Ram Charan, who fell in love with the villain character thought of himself doing that role.

This much-hyped remake has become more talkative subject than any other film. Let’s wait and see whether Nagarjuna will play as the villain or someone else will play this role.
