After Allu Aravind and Dil Raju, another Telugu producer is foraying into Bollywood. We hear that Abhishek Nama is gearing to remake Telugu film Brochevarevarura in Hindi. Apparently, the producer, who generally backs content-based films in Telugu, liked the comedy thriller so much that he acquired its Hindi rights, believing that it has universal appeal and will attract the Bollywood audience too. He now wants to cast a star kid in the lead role, and has reportedly zeroed in on Sunny Deol’s son, Karan Deol (of Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas fame).
“Apparently Kareena Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are also being approached for significant roles, although nothing has been finalised yet,” says an informed source. The Hindi version thus looks like having an ensemble cast. But the director is yet to be finalised. According to the source, “Abhishek Nama is planning to rope in Vivek Athreya who directed the Telugu version; a clearer picture is expected to emerge in a fortnight’s time.”
