Mumbai: Director SS Rajamouli has rubbished the reports
that Abhishek Bachchan will reprise
Nani's role in the Hindi version of his hit movie Eega,
which has been titled Makhi. His comment is coming after
the rumours started doing rounds that the director would reshoot
for the Hindi version with the Bollywood actor for Nani's role.
Rajamouli says that there is absolutely no truth in those reports.
It was reported earlier that the makers of Eega have
roped in Abhishek Bachchan for its Hindi version. Sudeep and
Samantha have already dubbed for it. But since they share screen
space with Nani in a few sequences, they are expected to reshoot
for those sequence with the Bollywood actor very soon.
Talking to a leading English daily, SS Rajamouli says that
neither he has roped in Abhishek for Hindi version of
Eega, nor his team is reshooting any scene. "There's no
way that we are reshooting the scenes. The Abhishek Bachchan
rumours have no truth to it. The Hindi version will be completely
dubbed, which would mean we have the original cast intact," the TOI
quotes the director as saying.
Meanwhile, Rajamouli says that Eega has a universal
appeal, which has been accepted by everyone. So he does not want to
change anything in it. The director says, "As most of the film is
action-oriented, as opposed to dialogues, it has a universal
appeal." Talking about his plans to release it in 3D format,
Rajamouli says, "I am not sure on that as of yet. The decision lies
in the hands of our producer."
