After seeing the Tamil blockbusters Gilli and
Pokkiri, the remake versions of his original Telugu films,
Mahesh Babu is keen to dub his Telugu films directly into Tamil.
Earlier his Athadu was dubbed and released as
Nandhu and did average business at the box office. Now he
is busy with the dubbing of his Telugu block buster
The film has been directed by Gunasekaran, with Mahesh Babu in
the lead role. Leading actress Trisha paired up with Mahesh Babu
for the third time in her career. Her onscreen exposure is one of
the highlights of the film. Sainikkudu has been titled as
Kumaran in Tamil. Ravishankar has written the dialogues
for the flick, and lyrics are by Na Muthukumar, Snehan and Viveka.
Harris has scored the music.
Earlier, many producers from Tamil approached the producer of
Sainikkudu to get its Tamil remake rights. But the hero
stopped the producer from selling the rights for the film, as he
wished to directly market his film in Tamil as a dubbed version.
The film will be released in Chennai (4 Screens) and all over the
state on October 5.
