Kollywood actor has turned out to be a bankable actor, and his continuous hits made him more popular in the film industry. His movie ‘Karnan‘, which was helmed by Mari Selvaraj, was released this year and the social drama grossed good numbers at the box office. We have already reported that Dhanush starrer recent blockbuster ‘Karnan’ will be remade in Telugu. Popular Tollywood producer Bellamkonda Suresh has bagged the Telugu remake rights of ‘Karnan’. Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas will play the lead role in this remake of Tamil blockbuster movie.
The sources say that Venkatesh Daggubati was initially presented with the opportunity of starring in the Telugu remake of Karnan but he rejected the offer and later the makers locked Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas.
Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas will start working on the Karnan remake project once he wraps up the Hindi remake of Chatrapati under the direction of VV Vinayak. A huge set was erected recently in Hyderabad for the first schedule of the remake.
On the otherside, currently Venkatesh is working on Narappa, which is a remake of Dhanush starrer revenge drama Asuran. The sources say that Veny Mama is feeling that it won’t be right to star in another remake of a Dhanush starrer in such quick succession. So he said no for the remake.
