There are reports that Tamil star couple Suriya and Jyothika have expressed interest in remaking this film into other South Indian Languages. But there has been no confirmation about this from the Tamil superstar.
This is the latest trend wherein makers publicize that a certain superstar will remake their film, but soon the audience would realize that this is just a publicity stunt.
However, film will have release in Telugu as well, where the film is titled as Chinnari. Recently, popular director Maruthi launched the posters and theatrical trailer of the Telugu version. There is no official word as to whether the film will have simultaneous release in both the languages.
