Abhishek in remake of Ghilli? November 25, 2009

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 “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.

    I haven’t seen Ghilli (I don’t like Vijay much) but Okkadu is a good movie, and I think Abhishek will be great in it! He and Mahesh Babu share that sort of goofy-but-hot charm, so I can see it working.

    I’d love to see Bhoomika Chawla as the heroine again, too — she and Abhi were good together in Run.

    I think Abhishek is a poor choice. I’d rather see Imran Khan. Not because I feel he would be a great casting decision, but simply because I find him hot, thanks to Kidnap 😉

    I’ve grown to like Ghilli. I didn’t like it the first couple of times I tried to view it, but a couple of months ago, I watched some of it again and decided it wasn’t as unwatchable as I initially thought.

    I liked Okkadu but I wasn’t crazy about the heroine, Bhoomika Chawla. She’s just one of those actresses who, for whatever reason(s), doesn’t appeal to me.

    I forgot Abhishek had done run! He was good in that. He can probably stll get away with playing a college student.

    I feel the same way as Lapetitediva about Boomika Chawla. She comes across as very timid and passive. It bothers me. I didn’t like her in Tere Naam either.
