The remake rights of the film have been purchased by producers Mohan Apparao and T Ramesh for a record amount.
They beat three other producers to get the remake rights of Dabangg at a whopping price.
Sources close to Simbu say that he has confirmed to do Dabangg in Tamil. Simbu will play Chulbul Pandey, the dirty and funny cop with shades of grey made memorable by Salman Khan in Tamil.
The other details are being worked out and an official announcement will be made shortly.
