If ongoing buzz in media and film industry are to be believed, Varun Dhawan will play the lead role in the Hindi movie, which is a remake of Tamil movie Theri in which Thalapathy Vijay played the lead role. The film also had Samantha Akkineni and Amy Jackson in female lead roles. The reports are coming that Atlee, who helmed the original version, might direct Varun Dhawan in Hindi remake. However, there is no official confirmation regarding the Varun Dhawan’ Theri remake.
The discussion regarding Vijay starrer Theri being remade in Hindi has been doing rounds for quite some time.
Meanwhile there was an announcement some time ago that Theri will be remade in Telugu with Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja playing the hero. But the project did not take off and Amar Akbar Anthony star Ravi Teja started to concentrate in Disco Raja. It is being heard that the shooting of Ravi Teja’ Theri remake will go on floors post lockdown. Director Santosh Srinivas of Kandireega fame will helm hit and Catherine Tresa will play the female lead.
On the otherside, Badrinath Ki Dulhania fame Varun Dhawan will be next seen in Hindi movie Coolie No. 1, which is in the post production stage.
