"I have bought the remake rights and I intend to start shooting for the remake soon. We are yet to zero in on our cast. The story will be tweaked to suit the nativity of the Telugu audiences. The film was very well received in Tamil, and I hope for the same in Telugu as well," Suresh told IANS.
Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam, which released on Sep 6 in Tamil Nadu, turned out to be one of the biggest hits of the year in Tamil. Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 7 crore, it minted over Rs 30 crore in first three weeks. Directed by Ponram, Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam marked the fifth consecutive hit for Sivakarthikeyan, who played the lead in the film. Sri Divya, Soori and Sathyaraj were also seen in important roles.
Suresh Kondeti, known for usually producing the Telugu dubbed versions of Tamil films, will be producing a remake for the first time. Some of the dubbed films of Suresh include Premisthe and Pizza. He has also acquired the Telugu dubbing rights of recent critically acclaimed Tamil drama Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer. Meanwhile, there are rumours that Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam is likely to be remade in Kannada with actor Sharan.
