Tamil hit film Bogan starring Jayam Ravi and Hansika Motwani is now being remade in Telugu and the film will feature Mass Maharaj Ravi Teja in the lead role. Director Lakshman, who helmed the original in Tamil, will be directing the Telugu remake as well. Reports earlier were indicating that Catherine Tresa was roped in for the remake of ‘Bogan’ as the lead actress opposite Ravi Teja.
Catherine Tresa was initially signed on to play the leading lady and she even tweeted that she’s excited to be part of the project. However, it looks like she might be replaced by Kajal Aggarwal for reasons yet unknown.
Apparently, the makers have already approached Kajal and it’ll be interesting to see if the makers manage to get her on board, as she’s a much major star and is widely popular in Telugu filmdom.
Talks regarding Kajal’s inclusion in the project have begun, and a better picture might emerge in the next few days,” a source was quoted in a DC report. Kajal Aggarwal, who already has quite a few films up her sleeve, seems to be the front runner for the lead actress role if the makers decide to make any changes to the current cast. Kajal Aggarwal will soon start working on Paris Paris, which is a remake of Bollywood blockbuster film ‘Queen’.
“The second half in the remake will be even more intense and emotional. Since Telugu audiences like more emotional content, some minor changes will be made in the climax,” a source said.
The female lead, once selected, will be essaying Hansika’s character in the remake. The project was supposed to go on the floors earlier this year but due to Ravi Teja’s prior commitments, the plan had to be pushed.
The regular shooting will now commence from Hyderabad. The makers hope to wrap up the project in flat three months. Imman had composed music for the original and he might be retained for the remake.
Meanwhile, Ravi Teja is busy with two other Telugu projects. In Raja The Great, which is slated for release in October, he plays a blind character. In Touch Chesi Chudu, he is said to be playing a rough-and-tough cop.
