After the super success of Eega, Nani seems to have arrived on the top rungs. His film Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu directed by Gautham Menon, where he co-stars Samantha again is due for release in November.
The buzz now is that Yash Raj Films has opened a production subsidiary in Secunderabad which aims to remake YRF Hindi productions in South languages. To start with, their 2010 hit film Band Baaja Baaraat will be remade in Telugu and Tamil and Nani will reprise the role played by Ranveer Singh in the original. The film will be directed by debutant Gokul, an associate of director Vishnuvardhan.
Both Eros and UTV started production of South films and YRF is also in the fray now. However, YRF will initially remake their hit Hindi small star films in South languages before making films with top stars.
Band Baaja Baaraat was a romcom where the hero and heroine of the film join hands to start a wedding planning business.
