Prajwal Devaraj-starrer Gentleman remake rights in demand
The film’s trailer, which was released last week, has caught the attention of the audience as well as filmmakers from other languages
Prajwal Devaraj-starrer Gentleman, which is scheduled to be released on January 31, is creating a lot of pre-release buzz, and offers are already flowing in for its remake rights in Tamil and Telugu. The film’s trailer, which was released last week, has caught the attention of the audience as well as filmmakers from other languages. Actor Saikumar and STR's manager have enquired director-turned-producer Guru Deshpande for the remake rights in Telugu and Tamil, respectively.
“Saikumar sir said he was impressed by the trailer and the unique concept. He will be coming after Sankranthi to discuss the remake in Telugu. I was told that there is a Tamil film by Vishal in which the protagonist goes to sleep whenever he is in shock. But our story is about a person who sleeps for 18 hours a day. The story is woven around mafia, and the Tamil filmmakers have found the thriller aspect special, which is why they have approached us,” says Guru. “Other filmmakers have also shown interest, and a final call will be taken after we hold discussions with the producers and distributors,” he adds.
Gentleman, directed by Jabesh Kumar, also tackles the subject of the drug Menafar, which is mostly used in women’s egg trafficking. The topic is said to be one of the highlights of the film. Gentleman features Nishvika Naidu as the female lead and Sanchari Vijay in a pivotal role. It has Ajaneesh B Loknath’s music, while the cinematography is by Sudhakar Shetty.
