We have reported earlier about the South Indian remake of Bollywood superhit movie Delhi Belly. The latest to hear about the project is that the right holders of the South Indian version have decided to make a bilingual movie and they have zeroed in on Naga Chaitanya and Jayam Ravi to play the lead roles.
The buzz in the industry suggests that the production house has approached Naga Chaitanya and Jayam Ravi. It is said that, though the Telugu actor has not acted in a full-fledged role in Tamil till date, the actor's plans to make his debut in the Tamil film industry with Radha Mohan's next movie and his cameo in the blockbuster Tamil movie Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, made them to choose him for the key role.
The makers of the film felt that Naga Chaitanya would justify the character. Hence, they offered him the remake of Delhi Belly. Meanwhile, they were in two minds to cast whether to sign Jayam Ravi or Jeeva of Rangam fame but they finally opted the former over the later, confirms the source.
Further details of Delhi Belly remake are expected to emerge in the coming days.
