‘Thillalangadi’ goes places
The story was told in Telugu at first as ‘Kick’. It was then retold in Tamil as ‘Thillalangadi’. And now, the racy entertainer is all set to speak in Hindi, thanks to ace Bollywood producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
It is said that Sajid, who has made films like ‘Judwa’, ‘Kambhakkt Ishq’ and ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’, will remake the south Indian film with Salman Khan replacing Ravi Teja and ‘Jayam’ Ravi.
“Sajid Nadiadwala watched both the Tamil and Telugu versions recently. He liked the script and the way it was narrated. He immediately decided to take the film to Bollywood,” say sources in the know.
They add: “Sonkashi Sinha, who is acting opposite Salman in his forthcoming ‘Dabangg’, will be his co-star in Thillalangadi remake too. She is expected to recreate the magic of Ileana and Tamannah, the heroines of Telugu and Tamil versions respectively.”
