Even as rumours about Jahnvi Kapoor, daughter of late Sridevi, making her debut in Tollywood are doing the rounds, word has it that her father, Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, has taken the Tollywood plunge.
In what could possibly be his first tryst with the Telugu cinema, the producer has teamed up with another producer, Dil Raju, to jointly bankroll the Telugu remake of a Bollywood hit, Badhaai Ho.
We’re told that the filmmaker has already started preparing the ground work for the remake. While the script work will kick off soon, Boney Kapoor is in the process of finalising the team for the project.
“After foraying into Tamil with the film, Nerkonda Paarvai, a remake of Amitabh Bachcan-starrer Pink, Boney Kapoor wants to enter Telugu cinema. While he has been toying with the idea of a concept-based cinema, he eventually thought that Badhaai Ho will be the right film to debut in Telugu as a producer,” explains a source.
