Old Monk’s Telugu remake and dubbing rights sold
The film is directed by MG Srinivas, who also plays the lead role
The shooting of the Kannada film, Old Monk, is still underway, but the romantic comedy entertainer's remake rights are already in demand. Ravi Kashyap’s Starwood and Klapboard production house have acquired the rights for the Telugu remake and dubbing of the yet-to-be-released film.
Old Monk is directed by MG Srinivas, who also plays the lead role. It also features Aditi Prabhudeva, Sudev Nair, S Narayan, and Sihikahi Chandru as part of the cast. Saurabh-Vaibhav, the composers of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, will be providing the music, while Bharath Parashuram will be handling the camera for the film.
Srinivas’ last film, Birbal Trilogy: Vajramuni Case No 1 is now being remade as Thimmarasu in Telugu, and Old Monk will be next in line.
RJ-turned-director Srinivas, who made his film debut with Topiwala, has conceived Old Monk as the story of a sanyasi who stirs up controversies and ends up falling in love.
