Bollywood on a South remake spree. Ghilli itself is a remake of Mahesh Babu’s Okkadu.
Good move or not? Personally I preferred the original to Ghilli (as was the case with Pokiri) but Vijay was really likeable and I enjoyed both the film and music. Abhi could possibly make it work, I think.
It is almost confirmed that Prabhu Deva will be doing his next Hindi film with AB Corp, the company of the Bachchans.
The buzz is that it will be a remake of Vijay’s Ghilli, which itself was a remake of Mahesh Babu’s Okkadu from Telugu.
Prabhu Deva confirmed that he had met Abhishek Bachchan a few days back and narrated the story, which junior Bachchan loved.
He told sify.com: “I did meet Abhishek in Mumbai and narrated the story which he liked. My next film in Hindi will be with him some time in mid 2010, after I complete my Tamil film with Jayam Ravi.”
Right now, Prabhu Deva is in US looking for a heroine for the Tamil film. He will be starting his next untitled film in Paris, with most likely a new face as the heroine.
Great song from Ghilli. Trisha is so cute.
