It seems Samantha will be the heroine of the Telugu remake of ‘Thani Oruvan’, which will have Ram Charan in the lead role. The Tollywood version will be helmed by Surender Reddy of ‘Kick’ fame.
In the Tamil version, the hero and the heroine roles were played by Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara respectively, while the film was directed by Mohan Raja. “The Telugu rights have been acquired for a record price,” sources said.
While there are unconfirmed reports that Madhavan would replace Aravind Swamy as the urban-suave baddie, an official confirmation is awaited in this regard.
‘Thani Oruvan’ was produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram, Kalpathi S Ganesh and Kalpathi S Suresh under the banner AGS Entertainment. The soundtrack was composed by Hiphop Tamizha.
The film was a blockbuster hit and the performances were well received by the critics as well as audiences. It was released on 28 August 2015.
