Sunil, Naga Chaitanya in Vettai Remake

Telugu cinema’s budding hero Naga Chaitanyais likely to join hands with comedian-turned-hero Sunil. A source close to the actor reveals that duo might work together for the Telugu remake of the successful Tamil film “Vettai”. “Bellamkonda Suresh is producing this movie and Dolly of “Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam” fame is directing it. Naga Chaitanya will start shooting for this film immediately after wrapping up “Autonagar Surya”,” says our source.

Revealing more details of the film, our source says, “Sunil will play an introvert cop (originally enacted by R Madhavan), while his younger brother Naga Chaitanya (Arya’s role) will play an aggressive and jobless lad.” With “Poola Rangadu” clicking at the BO, Sunil is now being considered a safe bet for lead roles. According to industry watchers, the unusual combo venture of Naga Chaitanya and Sunil is sure to generate a lot of interest. The shooting is likely to start in the last week of June and the leading ladies for this Telugu remake are yet to be announced.

Also, Bellamkonda Suresh’s abrupt decision to buy the remake rights of “Vettai” has surprised one and all. Initially, Suresh made a bid to buy the remake rights of “Vettai”, but later relinquished it and the original filmmakers thought of going ahead and dubbing the film in AP with the title “Bhale Tammudu”.
