Vikram’s Pithamagan to be remade in Hindi
The Bollywood remake of South films continues with Satish Kaushik buying the Hindi remake rights of National Award winning 2003 Tamil film Pithamagan ( Sivaputhrudu in Telugu) directed by Bala and starring Vikram and Surya.
The competition was so severe that Bollywood bigwigs like Boney Kapoor, David Dhawan, Vashu Bhagnani, UTV Motion Pictures and Sanjay Dutt vied for the remake rights. Finally Kaushik made it.
In fact Kaushik remade Bala’s debut film Sethu (Seshu in Telugu) in Hindi with Salman Khan titled Tere Naam.
