Nikhil’s Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada released during the demonetisation crisis. It however turned out to be a hit proving content trumps everything. The film starred Nandita Swetha and Hebah Patel in the lead and was directed by ViAnand. Now the film’s producer P.V Rao has announced that Tamil and Hindi remakes of the film are underway. Noted Bollywood studios are in talks for the remake.
In Kollywood G V Prakash, Sibiraj and Vijay Sethupathi have apparently expressed interest in playing the lead role. Madan of Escape Artists will co-produce the film along with Rao. The cast and crew details are yet to be offcially announced.
The Tamil version is likely to start rolling soon. Vi Anand will not be directing it though as he is busy with his next film with Allu Sirish which starts in March.
