Mega fans are already a furious lot. They are badly disappointed with the remake-heavy line ups of Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan. Well, they are now given one more reason to be furious.
It is all but confirmed that Pawan Kalyan is collaborating with Harish Shankar for the Telugu remake of Theri. This will be Pawan’s immediate next film after Hari Hara Veera Mallu.
Pawan’s decision to go ahead with the Telugu remake of Theri has left even his fans breathing fire and they have now started a negative trend against the same on Twitter.
“Entanna(PK) maaku idi? We watched Theri already. It is also dubbed and released in Telugu as Policeodu. The Telugu version is telecasted on TV twice every week. And on top of that, it is streaming on OTT now. How can you expect the audience to be excited about your film while many have watched it already and can also watch it now with a single click?” an anguished fan of PK commented.
The fact that Pawan already did Vakeel Saab and Bheemla Narak, and is now doing another remake with Harish Shankar is leaving his fans fuming and the Twitter trend #WeDontWantTheriRemake more than clearly implies the same.
On the other hand, there is an argument that Harish Shankar is good with remakes and they are citing Gabbar Singh and Gaddalakonda Ganesh as examples. But the negative trend is clearly outweighing this.
