When Bala’s Sethu was remade in Bollywood as Dhere Naam, no one predicted that the film would hit to the headlines. Further it added pep to the growing chart of Salman Khan. As the film proved to be an instant hit, its producer-director Sathish Kaushik was waiting for a right occasion. After these years of patient hatching now Sathish Kaushik has got the nod for the remake of another one from Bala.
This time it is Pithamagan involving the same Vikram and for a change Surya with Laila in the lead roles. Sathish Kaushik said the script of Pithamagan has more scope for Bollywood audience. He expressed his idea of roping in Salman Khan for the role donned by Vikram. This is because Vikram’s physique and dialogue delivery match that of Salman Khan. For that matter Salman Khan too has expressed his desire to take up this role.
Remember, Vikram fetched the national award through this Pithamagan. Not enough, Vikram has been perturbing Bala for a similar character at the earliest. Sathish Kaushik holds the remake rights for Pithamagan and is eager to commence the project at the earliest.
