Kali, directed by Sameer Thahir had Dulquer and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles. Kali, released in 2016 was a commercial success. The movie is a road thriller that has its core plot taking off with the events that occur during the lead couple’s journey through a remote area. It is more of a character study about the protagonist’s quick tempered nature which lands the couple in trouble.
It is learnt that the success of Sai Pallavi’s debut Telugu film Fidaa has inspired for a dubbed version for Kali. Previously, Dulquer’s other films like 100 Days Of Love, OK Kanmani, Ustad Hotel, Bangalore Days and Kammatipadam have also been either dubbed or remade in Telugu language.
Interestingly, Kali is also getting a Kannada version. Since the movie’s story can be set in any milieu, the movie is also getting remade in Kannada. The Kannada version is titled as Kidi and it marks the directorial debut of S Raghu, a renowned choreographer. Bhuvan and debutant Pallavi are playing the lead roles in the movie.
