Director Lakshman’s Bogan, which had Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swami in the lead and had released earlier this year to critical acclaim, is all set to be remade in Telugu with Ravi Teja and Catherine Tresa, a source in the know confirmed.
Lakshman will direct the remake as well. However, slight changes will be made to the project to suit the Telugu audience.
“The second half in the remake will be even more intense and emotional. Since Telugu audiences like more emotional content, some minor changes will be made in the climax,” a source said.
Unlike Thani Oruvan, which was remade in Telugu as Dhruva and saw Arvind Swami reprising his own role, the Roja actor won’t be part of the Bogan remake for reasons yet unknown.
Catherine Tresa has been signed on to play the leading lady and she will be essaying Hansika’s character in the remake.
The project was supposed to go on the floors earlier this year but due to Ravi Teja’s prior commitments, the plan had to be pushed. The regular shooting will now commence in Hyderabad.
The makers hope to wrap up the project in flat three months. Imman had composed music for the original and he might be retained for the remake.
Meanwhile, Ravi Teja is busy with two other Telugu projects. In Raja The Great, which is slated for release in October, he plays a blind character. In Touch Chesi Chudu, he is said to be playing a rough-and-tough cop.
With no releases in the last two years, Ravi has been working non-stop over the last six months and has almost finished work on both of the projects.
