Actor Sudeep is now planning to recreate the 1981 blockbuster movie
Antha, which featured Rebel star Ambareesh in lead. The
movie is titled Kanwarlal. According to Kicha, the movie
will be based on Antha, but it will not be a remake. He wants to
give a new twist to it.
The actor-turned-director says that recreating a film has not
been done before and it is something new in Kannada. He has already
discussed the film with Ambarish, Rajendra Singh Babu and Jayamala
and they given their consent. "It"ll be a tribute to Ambi mama," says Sudeep.
He says that the film Kanwarlal will be based on
Antha, but won"t be a remake. He is just taking the soul
of the film and everything will be stylised. He will try to better
various aspects besides maintaining the standard of the original.
So he is roping in the experts for the same. “A lot of people who
are fans of Antha are working on the script with me," says
However, he confirms that Ambi is not playing any role the
Antha. He says that Antha was not an impulsive
decision. It was on there in his mind before Just Maath
Maathalli. Dandam Dashagunam will also start
