If all goes well, Salman Khan will be the hero in the Hindi remake of Mahesh Babu starrer Telugu blockbuster Dookudu.
Apart from Bodyguard, no other Bollywood film has had a dream run at the box office. In an effort to cash in on the success of Dookudu, Sreenu Vaitla, who directed Ready in Telugu is keen to remake Dookudu in Hindi with Salman Khan.
Tollywood's Dookudu has apparently earned more than Rs 30 crore. Brad Pitt's Moneyball is the only other movie to surpass it financially. Salman Khan's camp has hence decided to make the best of it.
Speaking to a leading English daily, a source close to Salman Khan's camp said that the character portrayed by Mahesh Babu in Dookudu fits Salman's personality perfectly and hence they need not make much changes in the Hindi version.
Interestingly enough, the script for the film Dookudu was written with Salman in mind. While the costs for the Telugu version of Dookudu came up to Rs 35 crore, the Bollywood remake for Dookudu will be approximately Rs 45 crore.
However, Bollywood's very own 'Bodyguard' is still to watch the Telugu film Dookudu after which he is expected to give a nod.
