Meher Ramesh to direct Prabhas
Actor Prabhas has been going through a lean patch. All his recent films, including Puri Jagannath directed Bujjigadu from Chennai, bombed at the box office. He desperately needs a hit to stay in the tinsel town race.
According to sources, Prabhas is said to have accepted a proposal to act in a film directed by Meher Ramesh, who earlier made Kantri with NTR Jr. The film however will be a remake of the hit Tamil film Billa starring Ajith.
However, Billa itself is the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s Don, which was earlier made in Telugu as Yugandhar starring the late NTR. The assumption is that Meher Ramesh’s Telugu adaptation of Billa or Don may have shades of Shah Rukh Khan’s Don directed by Farhan Akhtar.
