Prabhu Deva, who managed to impress audiences and critics with his directorial debut ‘Wanted’ in 2010 (‘Pokiri’ in Telugu, he also directed the Tamil version with the same title), managed to impress Akshay Kumar with his next project ‘Rowdy Rathore’. Apparently this film is nothing but the remake of the Telugu blockbuster ‘Vikramarkudu’ directed by SS Rajamouli. While Ravi Teja
impressed the critics and audiences with his brilliant performance as Athili Sattibabu and Vikram Rathod, now Akshay Kumar hopes to repeat the same feat again.
Famous director Sanjay Leela Bansali will produce this action entertainer with Sonakshi Sinha as leading lady opposite Akshay and the film launch will take place in July. ‘Vikramarkudu’ was also remade in Tamil as ‘Siruthai’ featuring Karthi and Tamanna. This remake which was directed by Siva also went on to become 2011’s most successful Tamil film.
