Last year's Tamil sleeper hit, Eetti, about an athlete suffering from rare bleeding disorder, is all set to be remade in Telugu. Although the plan was to originally rope in Naga Chaitanya; it has been learnt from reliable sources that the actor has turned down the offer. The latest update is that the offer has been passed on to actor Aadi, who is basking in the success of his latest film, Chuttalabbayi.
Aadi, who has been a runner in school and college, is seriously contemplating the idea of doing the film. He feels that it'll be an interesting project career-wise because he has so far only been seen in lover boy roles and is desperately looking to break the monotony.
In Eeti, directed by Ravi Arasu, Atharvaa played an athlete, and he had to undergo an extremely taxing physical transformation which required him to train for nearly a year, even alongside real-life athletes.
