After wrapping up Subhash Ghai's Apna Sapna Money
Money, director Sangeeth Sivan isn't starting work on the
sequel of Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, as was speculated sometime
back. But the latest development is that Sivan will direct Bobby
Deol in the Hindi remake of the Telugu film Athadu [which
starred Mahesh Babu in the principal role].
"Yes, that's my next film," Sivan informs. However, the
remaining aspects [balance cast, technical crew] are under
finalization. "The casting should be finalized in a fortnight from
now. We hope to roll in mid-October," he states.
Athadu, released in 2005, tells the story of an orphan
Nandu, a professional killer. In one such operation, while fleeing
from the scene of crime, he unintentionally becomes the cause for
the death of a stranger, Pardhoo, who wants to return home after
twelve years. Nandu assumes the identity of Pardhoo and enters his
household in a remote village to escape from the cops.
