Pawan Kalyan in Ajiths shoesPublished: February 2, 2016
Like Ajith in Kollywood, Pawan Kalyan is known for his outspoken ways and fan following in Tollywood. Now, the ‘Power Star’ of Tollywood will play the lead role in the Telugu remake of Ajith’s ‘Vedalam‘.
The most interesting piece of information is that the movie would be helmed by Kollywood’s own S J Suryah, who had earlier given two movies- ‘Kushi’ and ‘Puli’- in Pawan’s company.
“After discussing so many scripts, the duo of Pawan and Suryah finally settled for ‘Vedalam’. They strongly believe that the story would suit the image of Pawan and would be liked by Telugu audience,” sources said.
‘Vedalam’, a Deepavali release, is written and directed by Siva, and produced by S Aishwarya. Ajith and Shruti Haasan played the lead roles, with Lakshmi Menon, Ashwin Kakumanu, and Kabir Duhan Singh among others, appearing in supporting roles. Anirudh Ravichander composed the music, while Vetri and Ruben were the cinematographer and editor respectively.
