Kannada movie Govindaya Namaha was recently remade in Telugu as Potugadu. The Tollywood version too, like the original version, has become a hit. It has now paved way for the Tamil version. Well, reports say that Silambarasan aka Simbu is likely to star in the Kollywood version.
L Sridhar, who has the South Indian remake rights of Govindaya Namaha, has claimed that serious talks are happening and he would be in a position to confirm about it soon. He wants to kick start the Tamil version in November. He is also planning to remake it in other languages.
Sources say that Cheran has expressed his wishes to direct the Tamil version. And also KP Jegannath of Raman Thediya Seethai movie is also being considered for the movie.
When it comes to the hero, Simbu is the first choice, say reports. The actor is impressed by the storyline and the deal is expected to happen next month. It has to be noted that Silambarasan had crooned the song 'Bujji pilla' in Potugadu, which starred Manchu Manoj Kumar, Sakshi Chodhary, Simran Kaur and Rachel in the key roles.
