Prakash Raj, after bagging the Telugu and Tamil remake rights of Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu, has now acquired remake rights to make the movie in Hindi as well.
There were reports earlier this week suggesting that the top
Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor has acquired rights for the Hindi
remake. Also, he will be making the movie with Shahid Kapoor and
Anupam Kher, playing the roles of Rakshit Shetty and Anant Nag
However, director Hemanth confirmed that producer Pushkar just
received the call from Boney Kapoor's office enquiring whether the
remake rights were still available and no further conversation
regarding the rights had taken place.
But by Wednesday night, Prakash Raj struck the deal with
producer Pushkar and co-producer Hemanth. Prakash Raj took on to
twitter to make an official announcement - "proud to officially
announce #prakashrajproductions will be producing #gbsm in Hindi
Earlier this week, Prakash Raj had met Bollywood Super Star
Amitabh Bachchan and tweeted - "A memorable meeting with the legend
at his home...Touched by his warmth.. Love ..energy... Dreaming for
more. Cheers". This tweet has led to many speculations after
Prakash Raj confirming that he will be making GBSM in
If we dig more into this tweet and meet of the legends, chance of Big B playing the role of Anant Nag cannot be denied. What is more delightful for the movie lovers than watching a legend enacting the role played by another legend in the original?
Meanwhile, Prakash Raj is busy with the post production work of his bilingual Idolle Ramayana, whose audio will be launched this month and team is planning for theatrical release by end of August.
