Earlier there were rumors that Actor-Director Prabhu Deva was trying to get Shahid Kapoor on board to reprise Ramcharan character in the Hindi remake of Madgadheera. But failed to convince the actor.
He has reportedly readied the script of Magadheera Hindi version . He is currently working on a script of a multi starer, which is likely to have Karthi and Vishal in the lead roles with a tentative title Karuppu Raja Vella Raja. Once Prabhu completes this Karthi-Vishal film, he will be remaking the Telugu cult classic Magadheera in Hindi with the same actor Shahid Kapoor. Shahid Kapoor in lead role as Magadheera will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
Earlier Prabhu Deva remade several Telugu films including Pokkiri (2007), Vikramarkudu (2006) and his own Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana (2005) in Hindi.
