As a breakaway from the usual trend of remaking Tamil hits in Telugu, now there has started a reverse trend of remaking Telugu movies in Tamil. A few days back a Tamil producer Singamala Ramesh bought the rights of Pokiri for a fancy offer of Rs 1.40 Crores.
Right now Ajit is showing interest to buy Ashok remake rights. Though Ashok is not yet released, he developed interest after listening to the story.
It is indeed a good sign for Telugu movies being remade into other language movies.
