Kali Telugu remake: Here’s the release date of Dulquer Salmaan-Sai Pallavi starrer Hey Pillagada
Malayali star Dulquer Salmaan is foraying to Telugu with Mahanati, the biopic of legendary actress Savitri. It is his first straight Telugu film though he has had a few dubbed releases. He is playing the role of the late Gemini Ganesan in this movie which also stars Keerthy Suresh and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in major roles. This Nag Ashwin directorial is a highly anticipated film in the Telugu industry.
But before Mahanati, Dulquer will have another release in Tollywood. His hit Malayalam movie Kali is being dubbed and released in Telugu as Hey Pillagada. The movie is slated to hit screens in the Telugu states on November 24. A decent opening is expected as both Dulquer and Sai Pallavi are popular among the Telugu audience.
Kali, directed by Sameer Thahir had Dulquer and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles. Released in 2016, Kali was a commercially successful film. Dulquer plays Sidharth, a quick tempered banker in the movie. His anger issues land him and his wife Anjali in trouble during a car journey through a remote area.
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 language. 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.
