Soon after the release of Eega, the rumours were doing the rounds that the makers had signed Abhishek Bachchan for Nani's role and others like Sudeep and Samanth would reshoot for their scenes with the Bollywood actor. But SS Rajamouli slammed the reports saying the Hindi version of Eega will be completely a dubbed movie. Neither it would feature any B-Town stars nor anyone would reshoot for it.
The director had confirmed that Makhi may likely be released in North India in October. Now, actor Sudeep, who is the villain in the movie has confirmed its release date. Kiccha tweeted, "The Hindi version of Eega is going to be releasing on October 12. Director SS Rajamouli himself confirmed the news, now that is great news. Looking forward to the film release."
However, it was also reported earlier that the Hindi version of Eega would release with one extra feature that the South version did not have. It would release in 3D format. But makers of this Nani-Samantha starrer are yet to confirm whether it will release in 3D or only in 2D format.
