Hari Gopalakrishnan's Singam 2 starring Surya and Anushka in leads, is all set to clash with Hindi movie Policegiri at the Box Office. But interestingly, the director, who is promoting his much-hyped flick, is going gaga over the Bollywood film and says that he is looking forward to watch the Sanjay Dutt starrer. You might be wondering on why he is curious about the Hindi film. The reason is that it is the remake of his own film Saamy.
Directed by KS Ravikumar, Policegiri features Sanjay Dutt, Prachi Desai, Prakash Raj, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj Joshi and Mukesh Tiwari in leads. It is set to hit the screen on same day of the release of Singam 2. But Hari does not seem to be worried over the idea of Singam 2 clashing with it. Rather he is eagerly waiting to see the work of KS Ravikumar and how the viewers will receive the movie.
Talking about the Bollywood movie, Hari expressed his confidence about Ravikumar's direction. "I loved the trailer of Policegiri and I want to see the film whenever I find time. I know Ravikumar sir would've done complete justice to the film. I'm eagerly waiting for Singam 2 to release and see how it will be received," IANS quotes Hari as saying.
The Telugu version of Saamy, which was titled Lakshmi Narasimha, featured Nandamuri Balakrishna. Hari says he has never thought of the remake of it in Bollywood. The director added, "I didn't expect that it will ever be remade in Hindi. I just made it and it turned out to be successful. The Telugu remake version was highly successful and I'm sure it will be bigger hit in Hindi as well."
However, Policegiri is one of the most-hyped Bollywood movies of 2013. Its promos have soared up the film goers' curiosity to sky high. Especially, viewers are eagerly waiting to see Sanjay Dutt rock on screen after his jail sentence. Trade experts in Kollywood feel that this Hindi flick will give a tough feat to Singam 2 at the ticket counters.
