Actress Tamannaah had no second thoughts when the Tamil remake of Pelli Choopulu was offered to her.
A source close to the actress says, “She is very excited to do the project. The filmmakers have tentatively decided to start shooting in March or April. Most of the shooting will be done in Chennai and they are confident that the Tamil remake will be as engaging as the original Telugu version.”
Hiking up the zero star cast value in ‘Pelli Choopulu,’ the makers reportedly roped in Tamannaah for female lead in Tamil version.Senthil Veerasamy who is long time associate of Goutham menon is directing the movie. The hero of the film, however, has not been finalised yet. Pelli Choopulu was an unconventional love story that had Ritu Varma and Vijay Deverakonda playing the leads in Telugu.
A film released with below par expectations emerged as a sensational blockbuster in Telugu last year and it is Vijay Devarakonda, Ritu Varma starrer ‘Pelli Choopulu’ from debutant director Tharun Bhascker backed by D. Suresh Babu. After a stiff competition to bag the remake rights in other regional languages, Gautham Menon bagged the Tamil rights.
It would be interesting to see Tamannaah getting into Ritu Varma shoes because both of them are poles apart when it comes to stardom. To all our known information, milk beauty had a dream run last year with ‘Oopiri, Dharma Durai’ and ‘Abhinetri’ while ‘Queen’ is one more ambitious remake signed and there is also ‘Bahubali 2’ set for release in this year. Indeed, a promising lineup.
