The 1988 Tamil classic Senthoora Poove will be remade
in Telugu with an all new cast, says producer Thandra Grihith, who
has got the remake rights of the movie.
Talking to IANS, Thandra Grihith said, "We are yet to zero in on
the director since we're looking for someone who could do justice
to the original. Meanwhile, we are on the verge of signing up an
all new cast for the film. We hope to start shooting from
December." He added, "We also intend to modify the original story
to suit the sensibility of the current generation. I'm extremely
thankful to the producers of the original for giving me permission
to remake the film."
Senthoora Poove featured Vijayakanth, Ramki and Nirosha in important roles. Directed by PR
Devaraj, the movie had enjoyed a run of over 200 days at the Box
Office. It was one of the highest grosser Tamil films of the year
Thandra admits remakes are becoming a fad. He said, "Remake
trend is fast catching up, but it's not always easy to make them.
One needs to make them with lots of responsibility because lots of
expectations ride on them. The respect for the original takes a
beating when its remake turns out to be a dud."
