Thozha: Karan Johar buys the Hindi remake rights of Nagarjuna’s film
Nagarjuna’s latest outing Thozha (titled Oopiri in Telugu) has turned out to be a superhit in both Tamil and Telugu film industries. The bilingual film, which is a remake of French movie The Intouchables, also has Tamil actor Karthi in one of the two lead roles.
According to a report published in DNA, Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar has bought the Hindi remake rights of Thozha. The cast and crew of the Hindi remake are yet to be decided.
Nagarjuna, who is happy about the development, has told the daily,“I am really happy Karan Johar bought the remake rights. Would I be in the Hindi film? I don’t know. That’s up to Mr. Johar. I am just happy to have done the two versions in Telugu and Tamil.”
He also added that the film would have not happened without the suggestion of his wife Amala. He said that she was the one to suggest him the idea of remaking The Intouchables.
Thozha is about the blossoming of a good relationship between an invalid Billionaire and his caretaker, who is a slumdog. The film has Tamannaah in the female lead.
