When Srinivas made the movie Katha Parayumbol in Malayalam, he would have never thought his movie will be remade in all the south indian languages. Yes, the movie will also be remade in Kannada, which was the only language remaining in the south.
This movie is all about the friendship between a barber and a superstar. The movie has already been made in Tamil and Telugu in the name of Kuselan and Kathanayakudu respectively and has superstar Rajinikanth, Nayantara in the lead along with Pasupathy and Meena in the Tamil version. In the Telugu version, Jagapathi Babu will play the role of Pasupathy. The movie is also being made in Hindi by Priyadarshan with Sharukh Khan in the lead role as Billo Barber.
Now it is the turn of Sandalwood to remake the movie. The movie is expected to have Golden Star Ganesh in the superstar role. The movie will be directed by Ramesh Arvind and the actor to perform the barber role is yet to be decided. The movie will be produced by Seven Arts, who have also produced Kuselan.
