The director of Race Gurram and the Kick series, Surender Reddy, would be the man wielding the megaphone for the Telugu remake of the Tamil blockbuster Thani Oruvan. Revolving around the struggles of an upright cop, who takes on the corrupt and powerful Siddharth Abhimanyu, the original was both critically and commercially acclaimed. The Telugu remake, to be produced by DVV Danayya, would feature Ram Charan in the lead.

Interesting, Vamsi Padaipally and Mohan Raja, the director of the original, were also in consideration for this remake. The rest of the cast including the female lead and a replacement for Aravind Swamy are yet to be finalized. Earlier, rumours were adrift that Kajal Agarwal might reprise the role of Nayanthara, but the team hasn’t confirmed the speculations. The remake is expected to go on floors by December 2015.
