Arundhathi is said to be the highest grossing Tollywood film in recent times. It catapulted the dusky and gorgeous Anushka Shetty to dizzy heights.
Interestingly, Bollywood filmmakers have been toying with the idea of remaking it in Hindi for quite sometime now. Though names like Katrina Kaif and Rani Mukherjee were doing the rounds, the big buzz is that Kareena Kapoor is the clear winner for playing the lead in this women-centric film. Sources said that Sonu Sood would be reprising his role as a strong antagonist in the Bollywood version as well, and that this version would be far more expensive and refined.
It may be recalled that Kareena, who has always loved doing women-oriented roles, had said in an earlier interview that she was highly impressed with Anushka’s performance in Arundhathi and was keen to act in its Hindi version. Gemini Film Circuit, responsible for all major remakes like Nanban (remake of 3 Idiots), has bought the B-town remake’s rights.
