Just like the soldiers at the border always on vigil, the cine folks of different circuits are on constant prowl. They keep tabs on what’s the happening movie and which has the potential to be remade or dubbed. As part of that, the Tollywood circuit is now eyeing one Hindi film scheduled to arrive in 2015.
We are talking about the film ‘Shamitabh’ which has an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush, Rekha, Abhinaya and the debut of Akshara Haasan, daughter of Kamal Haasan. It is directed by Balki and the filmnagar circles say if the film is interesting it can be adapted to Telugu and recreated.
The fact that Amitabh and the young hero Dhanush is acting is rare and the big backbone is the technicians in the form of P C Sreeram as the cinematographer, maestro Ilaiyaraaja for the music and others. Above all, Balki is famous for coming up with offbeat yet entertaining treats so this one is going to be no different. What remains to be seen is whether it would be appealing enough for a remake in Telugu.
