Prakash Raj holds special mention for enacting the same baddie role with more variations in all the three versions of Pokkiri (Telugu, Tamil and Hindi). Indeed, his extraordinary performances in the Hindi remake Wanted as Ghani Bhai has won him more offers in B-town.
Regrettably, the actor had to turn down those big offers patently for his commitment with dozen of South Indian projects. Precisely, the actor has refused to play the baddie in Kannada remake of Pokkiri.
It was not because of his refusal to play cliched roles, but because of prior commitments to other projects. Reportedly with no options left, producers of Kannada remake have roped in Aashish Vidyarthi while Darshan plays the lead role as an undercover agent.
