Bollywood movie Tanu Weds Manu, which was released during the World Cup 2011, has become a hit film of the year. Now, the film is being remade in Telugu and it will be directed by Dil Raju. According to sources, the director has approached comedian Sunil, who has agreed to play the lead role in the remake. But the official announcement about the film is yet to come.
It is reported that many Telugu film producers were in the race to buy the remake rights of Madhavan-Kangana Ranaut starrer Tanu Weds Manu, but it was finally Dil Raju and Nallamalapu Bujji, who bagged the rights from Bollywood producer Shailesh R Singh. The duo has recently started their own production house named Super Good Movies and they have planned to produce this remake as the first movie under the banner.
However, Tanu Weds Manu is all about Manu, who is a doctor in US, comes to India to find a bride for himself and falls for Tanu at first sight, but Tanu is a free spirited girl and she rejects him. Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut have played the leads in the original. Now, Sunil is said to play the Maddy's role, while the film bosses are on a hunt for a suitable actress for the female lead.
