Bollywood started taking the Telugu Film Industry very seriously only after ‘Baahubali’ took the entire nation along with it, making the nation chant just one mantra, “Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?
Content-oriented films are going there as remakes. After ‘Arjun Reddy’ remake, the next film on its way to Bollywood happens to be Nani’s ‘Jersey’. Popular producer cum filmmaker Karan Johar has bought the remake rights for the film.
The Telugu film had earned the highest critical acclaim. Nonetheless, the box-office collections weren’t at par with the talk. That means, a right star cast would make ‘Jersey’ find more love in Bollywood.
‘Kabir Singh’ is working wonders because the director and the producer caught hold of a potential performer like Shahid Kapoor for reprising Arjun Reddy in Hindi. Even ‘Jersey’ needs a similar setup with rock solid performer playing the lead.
As the subject is universal, an actor who can display the right attitude on the cricket ground including emotions that were a strong forte for Nani would make the remake even bigger and better. Let’s see who will come on board to repeat Nani’s performance.
