Popular Telugu actor Ram Pothineni, known for working in films such as Ready and Kandireega, is most likely to star in the Telugu remake of Arun Vijay's latest Tamil hit,Thadam, in which he played dual roles. According to producer Sravanti Ravi Kishore, remake rights have already been bought and the process of putting together the team for the remake is currently underway. If everything goes as planned, the film will go on to the floors in the next few months.
At a recent press interaction, producer Kishore said, “The remake rights have been bought and we plan to make it with Ram, but he's yet to watch the film as he's busy shooting for the Telugu film iSmart Shankar. We will take a final call after he watches the film. In a few weeks, we should be able to give more information on the project."
Directed by Magizh Thirumeni, Thadam is a thriller revolving around two twin brothers, played by Arun Vijay, who commit a crime and never get caught. The film has Smruthi Venkat, Tanya Hope and Vidya Pradeep in the lead roles. The film opened to good response from the audience. But the pirated version of Thadam was leaked in a matter of 24 hours after its theatrical release.
Thadam has emerged as a box-office success and has registered director Thirumeni’s first major hit. Meanwhile, there are rumours that Thirumeni might be retained to direct the remake as well. Meanwhile, Ram is currently shooting for Puri Jagannadh's iSmart Shankar and it is also believed that the duo is planning to team up for a sequel.
Magizh Thirumeni and Arun Vijay have joined hands for the second time. Their first venture Thadayara Thakka, despite being a quality movie, had gone unnoticed by the Tamil audience.
