After purchasing the official remake rights for Vijay Sethupathi’s critically acclaimed Panniyaarum Padminiyum, Nani has decided to reprise Vijay’s role in Telugu. He will team up with director G. Ashok of Pilla Zamindar fame for this remake, which will go on floors from October.
“Nani had acquired the Telugu remake rights of the film few months back. He will be playing the lead in the remake, while ‘Pilla Zamindar’ director Ashok will direct it. The film is expected to go on floors from October,” says a source. Actor Rajendra Prasad is being considered to play the role of Jayaprakash from the original. Nani is currently awaiting the release of Telugu action-drama Janda Pei Kapiraju. His name is also being discussed in hushed whispers for the Bangalore Days remake.
