After Kirik Party and U Turn, one more Kannada hit film is set to be remade in Telugu.
According to the latest reports, 2015 released Kannada comedy caper First Rank Raju, which highlights the perils of the current day education system, is going to have a Telugu version very soon.
Reportedly, sensible Telugu filmmaker Maruthi is keen on presenting the Telugu version as he feels that the story has universal appeal and will impress audience here. Directed by Naresh Kumar, the Kannada film was a runaway hit at the box office.
The Telugu version will be formally announced in a few days. Maruthi, who is also a prudent producer, is going to pool resources for this remake and it is yet to be known whether he will direct the film or not.
More details are awaited.
