It looks like hot and happening director Anwar Rasheed has run out of luck. He was shot to fame overnight with his very first film Rajamanikkam becoming a big blockbuster. People in Kollywood were keen to get the remake rights of this comic flick starring Mammootty, Padma Priya and Sindhu Menon. Anwar was supposed to direct the Tamil version with Sharat Kumar as the hero but the idea was finally dropped. Now, his latest hit Chota Mumbai has also got into trouble.
Anwar lived up to the expectations by making Chota Mumbai a big hit. When this mass masala film starring Mohanlal and Bhavana was released, people in the Tamil film industry were queuing to get its remake rights. Vijay was keen on remaking it in Tamil at one point of time but he has decided to look into its profitability in Tamil. Now, the news is doing rounds that he is no longer interested in the project. Instead, he has taken up the remake of a Kannada film.
The director wasted lots of time waiting for the Tamil remake of Rajamanikkam to happen and lost out lots of promising projects in the process. Now, that nightmare has returned again in the form of Chota Mumbai, as it is unlikely to see the light of the day in Tamil.
