So can Simbu do in Osthi what Salman Khan did in Dabangg? This is a very challenging question. Osthi is Tamil remake of Salman Khan’s Dabangg.
To this Sonu Sood, who had played villain in both Dabangg & Osthi has said that, “Simbu has got the same mass appeal that Salman has in Bollywood. And Simbu has really worked it out for Osthi. I am sure that Simbu’s character will gel with Tamil audience. Osthi and Simbu will repeat the magic of Dabangg and Salman Khan,” he said.
Sonu praised director Dharani saying, “There were some loopholes in the Hindi original. A smart Dharani has filled all of them with interesting things. He knows clearly what would work with the audience and made the film according to popular demand” he said.
Richa Gangopadhyay is the heroine and music by Thaman. The film hits the screens this month. The shooting has been completed with Simbu and Sonu Sood doing the climax scene where Simbu be will seen with a six-pack.
