Venkatesh to star in Telugu remake of Sethupathi?
Reports emanating from Tollywood say that Venkatesh might star in the remake of Vijay Sethupathi’s latest hit film Sethupathi.
Starring Vijay Sethupathi in probably his first-ever full-length serious role in that of a tough cop, Sethupathi was released in theatres two weeks back and has been doing pretty well. Audiences and critics have lauded Vijay Sethupathi’s cop act as well as the manner in the film had been made. Remya Nambeesan, who starred with Vijay Sethupathi in the 2012 hit film Pizza, got her second film opposite him in Sethupathi.
Leading Telugu heroes were trying to acquire the Telugu remake rights of the film penned and directed by S.U. Arun Kumar (of Pannaiyarum Padminiyum fame) and producer Shan Sutharsan. It is now rumoured that the lucky Telugu producer who acquired the Telugu remake rights has been approached by Venkatesh who wants to essay Vijay Sethupathi’s role in the Telugu version.
It may be recalled that Venkatesh is also set to star in the Telugu remake of Madhavan’s latest hit film Irudhi Suttru. Ritika Singh, who charmed Tamil audiences with her amazing portrayal, would be reprising her role in the Telugu version as well.
