Telugu version of Dulquer Salmaan’s Kali titled as Hey Pillagada
Malayalam movies are always known for their solid content rather than their production values. Several Malayalam movies have been remade in other langauges. For a brief while the trend of remakes seemed to be fading away but looks like it has picked up once again. After Bangalore Days, Premam and Charlie, now it’s Kali’s turn to get a Telugu version.
The Telugu dubbed version of Kali has been titled as Hey Pillagada. Kali, directed by Sameer Thahir had Dulquer Salmaan and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles. It is learnt that the success of Sai Pallavi’s debut Telugu film Fidaa has inspired for a dubbed version for Kali. Kali will be Dulquer’s second Telugu remake after the romantic entertainer 100 Days Of Love.
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. Since the story can be set in any milieu, the movie is also getting remade in Kannada.
The Kannada version titled as Kidi is gearing up to hit screens this month. The movie marks the directorial debut of S Raghu, a renowned choreographer. Bhuvan and debutant Pallavi are playing the lead roles in the movie.
