In a recent interview, Prabhudeva said he has been busy with the Pokkiri Hindi remake with Salman Khan. Originally, he said, he had another story for Salman Khan – one which required the star to play four roles. But when Salman saw Pokkiri, he liked it so much, he asked the director if they could remake it in Hindi. This Hindi version of Pokkiri, Prabudeva went on to add, will be more stylish and lavish than the Telugu or Tamil one.
His next film will be with Vijay, and for a change, it will not be a remake but an original story he wrote with the star in mind. It will be packed with action and romance. Deva assures the audience that it will be funnier than Pokkiri, and just as fast moving. There will be several comic scenes that the audience will relish (similar, say, to the famous lift scene from Pokkiri that the audience loved) with a lot of variety in the plot. Music will be scored by Devi Sri Prasad and camera by Ravi Varman. Perhaps the highlight of this new Vijay film, pointed out the director, is Nayanthara as heroine.
