NTR Director For Pawan’s Next?Mar 24, 2016 08:55 AM IST
Pawan Kalyan is gearing up for remake of the super hit Ajith starrer Tamil flick, Vedalam. Power star will star shooting for the film after he wraps up Sardaar Gabbar Singh. It was speculated that Khushi director SJ Suryah will direct the remake. But latest reports indicate that young director Santosh Srininvas will be directing the remake. Santosh has earlier directed Ram’s hit film Kandireega. Vedalam is mass entertainer with sister sentiment.
Pawan’s films like Tholiprema and Annavaram had sister sentiment and they turned out to be hits. Moreover Ajith film has enough scope for action as well. Shruti Haasan played female lead in original. It has to be seen who will get a chance to pair Pawan in the remake. Initially, senior stars like Balakrishna and Chiranjeevi also were considered for Vedalam remake but they haven’t shown interest, apparently. NTR also was approached but the star is said to have declined since sister sentiment films didn’t bring him luck. Remember his movies like Narasimhudu and Rakhi haven’t fared enough at box-office.
