Pelli Choopulu remake : Gautham Menon to direct Nivin Pauly ?
We had earlier reported that Gautham Vasudev Menon had bought the remake rights of the blockbuster Telugu movie Pelli Choopulu.
The director is apparently trying to rope in Mollywood’s sensational actor Nivin Pauly. GVM has earlier in an interview expressed his desire to work with Nivin.
Pelli Choopulu is an urban romantic comedy film that would be perfect for GVM’s style of filmmaking. Nivin Pauly with his guy next door looks and charm would fit the bill perfectly for the main lead.
Gautham Menon is currently working on Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta with Dhanush in the lead. The stylish filmmaker is also in talks with many leading actors like Suriya and Vikram for different projects.
Earlier Jayam Ravi, Prithviraj Sukumaran and two other top stars from the South Indian industry were reported to play the leads in a multi starrer directed by Gautham Menon. The movie was rumoured to be titled as Ondraga.
After the massive success of Premam, Nivin Pauly has expanded his fan base in Tamil Nadu also. It will be exciting if this project materializes. A stylish and classy filmmaker known for his urban romantic entertainers directing a star whose forte has been with romance will be an absolutely mouth watering stuff.
Nivin Pauly has proven his calibre in rom-coms with his performance movies like Thattathin Marayathu and Premam. The actor meanwhile has committed some other Tamil movies.
Let us wait for an official confirmation from the director himself about his next project.
