Everyone witnessed the storm created by small film Pelli CHoopulu at the box office. Made on a budget of merely Rs.80 lakhs, it minted around Rs. 21 crores in the total run. Bowled out by its universal appealing content, makers of other languages are approaching the producers for the remake rights.
A few days back, it was reported that director Gautham Menon has bought the Tamil rights of this film. Now the latest buzz suggests that Gautham roped in Malayalam Superstar Nivin Pauly for this remake. Nivin enjoys stardom in Kerala and has a decent following in Tamil. His film Premam ran for a year in Chennai. Thus, Gautham thought this role will be apt for Nivin and his stardom will be an added advantage. Other details will be announced soon.
