We all know that after the success of Vicky Donor, both John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar would like to join hands once again and produce-direct another movie. Could this movie be a Tollywood remake? You never know! Word on the street is that John Abraham has reportedly paid an whooping amount of 1 crore to buy the remake right of Mirchi.
So hotshots in Bollywood always seem to follow a trend. Recently after the success of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, soap queen Ekta Kapoor decided to make a biopic and now a Tollywood remake. Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and even Aamir Khan made and starred in these remakes. So it is only natural for our hottie with the best body to follow their lead.
Says a source, “John Abraham was looking for a good Telugu film and happened to watch Mirchi a few weeks ago. He was impressed by Prabhas’ role and then bought the rights”. Since John bought the rights, it is obvious that he will star as the male lead. But who will be the female lead and will Shoojit Sircar direct the movie for sure? Commenting about the female lead and the director, Vijayakumar, a part of John’s production house says, “We haven’t signed the lead actress and the director yet.”
Did John really pay 1 crore for the remake rights? Because Salman had only paid 50 lakh to buy the remake rights of Pokiri. Vijayakumar further adds, “We can’t disclose how much but yes, it’s a reasonably good amount.”
