Chennai, Oct 7: It seems Bollywood film makers are currently smitten with Southern superhits for success. Boney Kapoor who earlier produced "Wanted" which is a remake of Telugu film "Pokiri" with Salman Khan is all set to produce the remake of hit Telugu film 'Okkadu' and has roped in son Arjun Kapoor to play the lead. The film will be going to sets next year.
Boney confirming the reports said, "Yes, I am making the remake of Telugu film 'Okkadu'. Eros has bought the rights of this film. I can't reveal the details of it right now. Once things fall in place, I can talk about it." Boney went on to add, "The film will go on floors in June 2013. Arjun is busy with other projects including 'Aurangazeb', 'Gundey' and '2 States'. Once he is done with these films, he will start shooting for the remake."
Boney said he is yet to decide the star cast for the film and even the director. Speaking to media he said, "The leading lady is not yet finalized. I will be able to talk about it after two weeks. Once I get the clarity and I can say who will be directing the film and who will be the leading lady. Right now it's too early to talk about anything." Directed by Gunasekhar, the 2003 Telugu film featured Mahesh Babu, Bhumika Chawla and Prakash Raj.
