Reports suggest that the producers are going to retain the portion of Sudeep and Samantha from the original film Eega for its Hindi version Makhi. But they have decided to change scenes of Nani and they want a Bollywood actor to shoot for it. Sudeep, who has acted in Bollywood films like Rann, Phoonk, Phoonk 2 and Rakta Charitra part 1 and 2, is already familiar with Hindi audience. Now, the makers want another popular B-Town figure to woo the audience.
It has been reported that the makers of Makhi have already approached Abhishek Bachchan, who has accepted to shoot for Nani's role in the film, which is about 10-15 minutes. It is also reported that Sudeep and Samantha have already dubbed to the Hindi version of Eega. Since they are seen with Nani, they have to reshoot for those sequences.
However, the confirmation of the news is yet to come from both the makers and Abhishek Bachchan. In a recent interview, SS Rajamouli spoke about the movie Makhi, but he did not reveal anything about the reshoot with new cast members. What he said was that they are yet to decide on whether to release it in 2D or 3D. He added, "If its 3D, it will probably come at the end of the year. But if it is 2D, it will release in Hindi in a month or so."
