Dhanush’s directorial debut Power Paandi just released and has received a lot of appreciation Critics and the audience have been praising the film because of its story and the message it conveys. Senior actor Rajkiran plays the lead role in the film and yesteryear actress Revathy plays a key role in the story. With Power Paandi becoming an enormous success, makers from other languages would definitely look to remake the film. And that’s exactly whats happening now.
Reports suggest that Super Star Rajinikanth, father in law of Dhanush, arranged for a special screening of Power Paandi for his close friend Mohan Babu and apparently, Mohan Babu was highly impressed with the film. And post this screening, it was Rajinikanth who suggested Mohan Babu to act in the remake of it in Telugu. Buzz is that director Subramaniam Siva will be helming the remake, who earlier directed Mohan Babu’s son Manoj’s debut film Donga Dongadi. Speaking to a leading daily, Subramaniam Siva said, “Mohan Babu sir really liked the film, and we are currently in the process of finalising the rest of the crew. He is currently recuperating from a surgery, and we will go on floors in the next couple of months.”
Buzz is that Dhanush will co-produce the remake and will be his first outing in a direct Telugu film. Rajkiran pulled off the role with ease and had a profound impact on everyone. We will have to wait and see if Mohan Babu will be able to pull off the role with equivalent results.
