Megastar Chiranjeevi will reportedly star in the yet-untitled Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster “Kaththi”. This project, which is expected to go on the floors later this year, will mark the 60-year-old actor’s much anticipated 150th film.
“Chiranjeevi has given his in-principle nod but is yet to sign the project. He’s waiting for some changes to be made to the script to suit the Telugu sensibilities,” a source close to the actor told IANS.
A.R. Murugadoss, who wrote and directed the original, has been asked to make suitable changes to the script.

The remake will be directed by V.V. Vinayak and produced by Madhu.
This will be the second time that Chiranjeevi and Vinayak will join hands for a Telugu film after “Tagore”.
Initially, the remake was planned with NTR and Pawan Kalyan, but since both of them didn’t show much interest, it finally came to Chiranjeevi’s notice and he immediately grabbed it.
Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan will co-produce this project.
