Sunil in talks for Telugu remake of 'Sundarapandian'

Chennai, Oct 27 (IANS) Actor Sunil Varma, who has so far starred in three remakes, is likely to be seen in yet another - the upcoming Telugu remake of recent Tamil blockbuster "Sundarapandian".

Telugu filmmaker Bheemineni Srinivasa Rao, who earlier remade southern films like "Tamizh Padam" and "Thirupaachi", will helm the new remake.

"Sunil has been approached for the remake, but we haven't finalized anything yet. In a couple of weeks we would have something concrete. We know that Sunil, who watched the original, was happy with the film, and therefore, we are hoping he would come on board soon," a source close to Bheemineni told IANS.

Three of Sunil's recent outings, namely "Maryada Ramanna", "Mr. Pellikoduku" and "Tadakha", were remakes of English classic comedy "Our Hospitality", Hindi romantic-comedy "Tanu Weds Manu" and Tamil action-drama "Vettai", respectively.

Sunil, who graduated from a comedian to the lead actor, is currently shooting for Telugu romantic-comedy "Bheemavaram Bullodu".

"If Sunil green-lights the project, regular shooting will start only after he completes his current film," added the source.
