NNOK to be remade in multiple languages
The telugu family drama by Venu Udugula will be remade in Tamil and Kannada
Actor Sree Vishnu's Telugu family drama Needi Naadi Oke Katha, which won critical and commercial acclaim for its relatable, yet novel content, is now all set to be remade in multiple languages, including Tamil.
"The remake rights were acquired by producers Kalaipuli S Thanu and Rockline Venkatesh (of Lingaa fame) for Tamil and Kannada. And a Bollywood producer has shown interest in making this film in Hindi. Talks are still on, and an official announcement about the Hindi version will be made as and when the deal is closed," says a source.
The project, which is currently in the early stages of development, is going to be a straight-up remake and will include a new cast and a new director. "NNOK's director Venu Udugula is against the idea of directing the remake and will not have any involvement in these films. Thanu and Venkatesh are planning to replace all the lead actors of the original with young and familiar faces from their respective languages and are considering several names to direct these projects," the source adds.
