Ileana replaces Anushka

Power Star Pawan Kalyan’s next movie after ‘Komaram Puli’ is going to be a remake of hit Hindi movie ‘Love Aaj Kal’.

Producer turned comedian Ganesh Babu will be producing this movie with Trivikram writing the dialogues and Mani Sharma composing music for the film. Jayanth C Paranji, who is good at adapting movies, will be directing the film. The movie was launched amidst fanfare at a function in Hyderabad, under the Parameshwara Arts banner.

The producer was in search of a nice story and finally he settled for a remake. But due to date issues with Bollywood actors, he thought of Samantha and Anushka initially as heroines. Later Anushka was signed for the lead role.

But the latest buzz is that Anushka has demanded a whopping Rs 1.5 Crores for the movie. The producers find it too high. She has charged Rs 2 Lakhs per day for her upcoming movie ‘Vedam’. But with the big banners, the number of days would increase and could cross 1.5 Crores.

However the producers were not happy with the idea and replaced Anushka with Ileana, as she was ready to adjust her dates. Thus the hit pair of Pawan-Ileana will be back after ‘Jalsa’.

Jayanth has plans to show both the leading actors in stylishly and is planning to release the movie in January, 2011. A part of the movie will be shot in USA as the original movie was partially shot in and around San Francisco. The movie has been tentatively titled Ninna Nedu Prema, but has not been finalised yet.

Pawan will be seen in a dual role in the film. It has been heard that Deepika Padukone has been signed for a cameo in the movie too. The film is scheduled to start its shooting from July.
