Sometime ago, it was reported that Dhanush’s much-loved maiden directorial venture ‘Pa Paandi’–which had hit screens earlier this year–would be remade in Telugu with Mohan Babu in the lead. Now, it seems that the remake is all set to go on the floors. According to a leading website, the Telugu remake of Pa Paandi will go on floors next month. It was initially supposed to on floors a bit earlier but things got delayed when Mohan Babu picked up an injury. The remake will be helmed by Subramaniam Siva who had assisted Dhanush while making ‘Pa Paandi’.
Interestingly, sometime ago, a source had revealed that Mohan Babu was finalised for the remake based on Rajinikanth’s recommendation.
“After watching Power Paandi, Rajinikanth sir recommended it to his best friend Mohan Babu. He even thought that he would perfectly fit the bill if remade in Telugu. Rajinikanth arranged a special screening of the movie for Mohan Babu, who was mighty impressed with the film,” a source had added.
Well, we hope that Mohan Babu does a terrific job in the remake and adds another feature to his cap.
In case you did not know, ‘Pa Paandi’ was a comedy-drama and featured Rajkiran in the lead. Revolving around a 65-year-old man who undertakes a mortorbike trip, it received rave reviews upon release. Besides Rajkiran, it featured Revathy and Prasanna in the lead.
So, do you think that Mohan Babu is the right choice for this attempted remake? Comments, please!
