Actor Nani’s last release Ninnu Kori received a phenomenal response by audiences and critics alike. While the film was looked at as progressive, the performances of the lead cast Nani, Nivetha Thomas was widely applauded too. And it looks like now the film is off to B-town.

Buzz is that the film’s writer Kona Venkat, who co-produced the film along with D.V.V. Danayya, has initiated talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the matter. “Before the release, Sanjay had contacted the team because he heard that the film’s script was similar to that of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. However, the  doubt was cleared and he ended up liking the story line of the film. After release, he watched the film and was all the more impressed,” shares a source in the know.

 

While it isn’t clear whether the Telugu producers will be a part of the Hindi version or not, it is learnt that Sanjay suggested Varun Dhawan’s name for the lead role. “It will take a while for things to materialise,” adds the source.
