Tollywood movies’ increasing market is evident from the latest move by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who has expressed interest in remaking the highly-successful Pellichoopulu. Sources revealed that Salman is planning to introduce his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma with the remake.

Confirming the news, Pellichoopulu producer Raj Kandukuri says, “Yes, we had a meeting scheduled with Salman Khan on Thursday evening, as he wants to remake Pellichoopulu in Hindi. Since he was unavailable, his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri represented him.”

 

Director Tharun Bhascker also accompanied Raj. However, Tharun is not interested in directing the Hindi version. “But they are insisting that Tharun directs the film and he might agree,” adds Raj.

Director-producer Karan Johar has also asked the producer and director to meet him during their visit. “Karan Johar has also invited us and we will meet him too,” confirms Raj. The makers are all set to meet Salman Khan in a week to finalise the deal.
