A few years ago, hero Siddharth and Bobby Simha teamed up for a comedy Gangster movie ‘Jigarthanda’ under the direction of Karthik Subbaraj. The movie turned out to be a super hit at the box office.
Now, ‘Gabbar Singh’ fame director Harish Shankar whose previous outing DJ ended up as a debacle at the box office is planning to remake ‘Jigarthanda’ movie in Telugu. More than the hero role, Bobby Simha who played the villain role garnered much appreciation. In the Telugu version, Harish Shankar has roped in Mega Prince Varun Tej to replace the role of Bobby Simha in the movie. The other actor who is going to play the lead role in the movie is yet to be announced.
As per the latest reports, Harish Shankar is in plans to rope in young heroes like Raj Tarun or Naga Shourya to play the lead in the movie. Harish Shankar is also considering the ‘Geetha Govindam’ beauty Rashmika Mandanna to play the female lead in the movie.
But Harish Shankar refuted the rumors saying, “Not true Sir pls follow my twitter handle before posting anything in twitter at least.”
Ram and Gopi Achanta are producing this film. The casting works are going on and the shooting will go on floors very soon. We have to wait and see if the Telugu version succeeds in recreating the same magic as the Tamil version or not.
