Mumbai: Director SS Rajamouli has rubbished the reports that Abhishek Bachchan will reprise Nani's role in the Hindi version of his hit movie Eega, which has been titled Makhi. His comment is coming after the rumours started doing rounds that the director would reshoot for the Hindi version with the Bollywood actor for Nani's role. Rajamouli says that there is absolutely no truth in those reports.
It was reported earlier that the makers of Eega have roped in Abhishek Bachchan for its Hindi version. Sudeep and Samantha have already dubbed for it. But since they share screen space with Nani in a few sequences, they are expected to reshoot for those sequence with the Bollywood actor very soon.
Talking to a leading English daily, SS Rajamouli says that neither he has roped in Abhishek for Hindi version of Eega, nor his team is reshooting any scene. "There's no way that we are reshooting the scenes. The Abhishek Bachchan rumours have no truth to it. The Hindi version will be completely dubbed, which would mean we have the original cast intact," the TOI quotes the director as saying.
Meanwhile, Rajamouli says that Eega has a universal appeal, which has been accepted by everyone. So he does not want to change anything in it. The director says, "As most of the film is action-oriented, as opposed to dialogues, it has a universal appeal." Talking about his plans to release it in 3D format, Rajamouli says, "I am not sure on that as of yet. The decision lies in the hands of our producer."
