It seems producer Rama Naidu’s determination to remake the yesteryear super hit movie Ramudu-Bheemudu played by late NTR is finally going to materialize soon. Recently, he has registered the film title ‘Ramudu-Bheemudu 2012 ‘with film chamber. Since, Jr.NTR is not responding to his proposal of acting in this popular remake film, Rama Naidu has prepared to do the same with his grandson Daggubati Rana. But, the latest news is Jr.NTR has expressed his interest to work in this film and it will be directed by the most successful commercial film director K.Raghavendra Rao. So, we can expect some interesting information about this movie very soon.
2011/4/27 8:56:01 Producer Rama Naidu recently has registered ‘Ramudu-Bheemudu2012’ title with Film Chamber for his Suresh productions. He is keen to make this movie with Jr. NTR whom he believes is a perfect successor for his grand father late NTR, who has played the dual roles in this yesteryear super hit film movie. But, Rama Naidu is said to be very much disappointed as Jr.NTR simply ignores his proposal and not even bothered to respond to his offer. Hence, it is reported that, he is planning to make this film with his grand son Rana. But, the year mentioned in the title is indicating that, the film may be slated for year 2012 release. If it is true then, he has enough time to finalize the hero, heroines and the other star cast of his film.
2006/11/15 11:16:11 The 100-days function of 'Andala Ramudu' would be held at Hyderabad on November 22.

If everything goes well, she might be roped in our next film also as heroine. We are planning to dub a successful Tamil film in which RB Choudary's son Jeeva played hero into Telugu on the same day.'
2011/1/23 14:08:46 During the last one year several times we might have heard the news about remaking the yesteryear super hit film ‘Pathala Bhairavi’ played by late NTR. Whenever, it was reported it become quite natural to carry a tag of Jr.NTR on it stating that, he will enacts his grand father’s popular role ‘Thota Ramudu’ in this remake film. Producer Ramanaidu, who is so eager to own the pride of remaking such a master piece, has been wondering around Jr.NTR but he absconds from him due to untold reasons. Recently, Ramanaidu has stated that, Jr.NTR should not be so proud of his acting talents as he has learn so much to learn in acting.
The latest buzz is Ramanaidu who is fed up with Jr.NTR, is said to be planning to remake this film with his grand son Daggubati Rana playing the ‘Thota Ramudu’ role.

2011/2/2 10:23:48 All the big producers and directors were relieved souls now, because all of they have found a remedy to resolve their problem-scarcity of new stories. Now, they don’t need to go through all those foreign and other language films to copy and to make the Telugu films. All they have to do now is, just get some super hit old Telugu film CDs readily available at a throw away prices in the market and remake them to suit present trends. This is the new idea invented by our producers.
The benefit of copying of our own films:
1. This will relieve lot off pressure off the story writers, directors and producers. This not only relieves the pressures of industry, but also the audiences who need not to strain their brains in understanding the story. (But, they have to take pains of tracing out the lyrics out of the music uproar in these films.)
2. Once this experiment is proved success then a second thought is not so essential to follow the path.
3. At the same we have the kin kith of those great stars of the past readily available to act in their father’s films. So, no need to search for suitable heroes for these films.
4. By the time our producers completes remaking of all our old films, the present ones will get eligibility for remaking again. By the time the great grand sons of our present stars will also grow and able to take reins from their fathers. Then they also can start remaking of their father’s films. This is a cycle which has no end as long as the audiences are willing to see them.
Where to begin?
1. To begin with, first of all we have ‘Pathala Bhairavi’ in tube. It will be remade with Rana playing the lead role. 2. Then comes all time hit ‘Ramudu Bheemudu’ of late NTR. We have Jr.NTR readily available for it and D. Ramanaidu is also ready to reproduce it. Then, serious thoughts over remaking ‘Narthanasala’ are also under consideration
3. By latest, we have to add ‘Bobbili Raja’ (played by victory Venkatesh) to this unending list of oldies. Rana is zeroed upon for the hero character for this film and search for heroine is on.
4. Then, we have lots of Akkineni films available for remakes. According to latest information, Akkineni Nageswara Rao’s all time hit ‘Prem Nagar’ catches the attention of Akkineni kins for this remake idea.
5. The other two big stars of the yester years Krishna and Krishnam Raju are also have enough stuff under their chairs for their successors.
This means we have stories, dialogues (Some punch and vulgarity to be added), melodious songs (to be remixed); successors of the heroes and producers readily available now. What all we need now is a strong determination not to make any new films or not to copy any foreign and other language films. We should confine to copy our own films. That’s all!
So, all the Telugu people should be proud of our film industry which has invented this great idea of remaking the oldies. In this case, our industry and the people need not to think about any further, at least for the next three four generations.
Let us hope, this is a new beginning for Tollywood.
It has become a regular feature in Tollywood these days to have at least one hit song of yesteryears to be remixed.

Mohanlal's Malayalam super hit Vishu film Chotta Mumbai which was hot on the remake preview circle in Chennai, has found no takers. There was news in a section of the press that Vijay is going to do the remake of that film, but nothing came out of it.
Our Ilayathalapathy is shrewd when it comes to remakes. Remember, he was the first person to see the Kannada Jogi, which he found unsuitable for a Tamil remake. Similarly Vijay knows that there is no point in doing a Mohanlal remake of a hit film, as his fans in Kerala would have seen the original.
Later Chotta Mumbai was seen by Vishal, who also showed no interest in doing the remake. A day later, Sathyaraj saw it and he enjoyed Mohanlal's on-screen antics in the film. The buzz is that he wants Sibiraj, his son to do the remake.
2011/3/23 13:47:50 Vishal starrer film ‘Pandhem Kodi’ which did an average business in the state is now planned for remake into Tamil by Lingu Swamy who directed the Telugu version of this film. Vishal gave his nod for the remake of the film. They are also planning to make a sequel to this film after completing this remake project. Vishal is currently working on a bilingual film being made in Telugu and Tamil.

This film is Produced by SV Prasad and Paras Jain has just been released with thumping success. One of the Producer Paras Jain was immensely enjoying these moments of success and said that more that we expected the film has succeeded and is being appreciated by the viewers. Even before the film was released the audio the viewers stamped the superiority of the film. In Andhra Pradesh and in all the Theatres the success story continues with thumping collections.
The success of this film entirely belongs to the Unit members as also to the Lead Pair of Sunil and Arti Agarwal. Each and every scene was appreciated and the climax, is extra-ordinary!!! Said the Audiences. With Sunil who has been transformed as Hero from regular Comedian and can certainly be recognized and is already in the air. With his debut in direction Lakshmi Narayan has achieved what others achieved in many years and will continmue in future said the Producer.
Movie Moghul Dr D Ramanaidu participated in a 'Meet the Press' programme arranged by Film Critics Association on November 13. Speaking on the occasion, he says, 'Mine is not a delicate mind to feel bad when I failed or to elate when there was a success. I faced several ebbs and tides during my long career. While the success of 'Ramudu Bheemudu' is the seed, it was the success of 'Premnagar' which could termed a plant.
Our banner grew step by step. After the success of 'Premnagar' in Telugu, we remade the film as 'Vasantha Maligai' in Tamil. Likewise, the Hindi version of 'Premnagar' was also a hit. It is like a tree for our banner. In fact, what all that I earned through films was invested again in the film industry. My banner has the credit of introducing 23 directors, four music directors, various cinematographers and technicians besides artistes. A total of 46 heroes, 126 heroines made their debut into the films through our banner.
Not only in film industry, I also entered into politics and was elected as MP from Bapatla constituency. However, I am keeping myself off from politics now. I had an ambition to produce films in all the Indian languages and I was able to realize it and only three languages like Guarati, Bhojpuri and Punjabi languages remained balance. After this, I had another wish to wield the megaphone. I am planning to take up direction by next year.
' Speaking about his children, Ramanaidu says, 'I came to the film industry with a wish to become a hero, but turned a producer. My son Sureshbabu is continuing my legacy as producer, while Venkatesh had fulfilled my wish to become a hero. It was also quite accidental. When we planned 'Kaliyuga Pandavulu', we could not obtain the dates of Krishna and Venkatesh made his debut in 1986 under the direction of Raghavendra Rao.
Now my grandson Rana Daggubati is also coming up as hero in film which would be launched in April. I am also planning to produce a film with all new faces by January next year. We are constructing a studio in Vizag with all the facilities. We are spending all the profits earned from our recent hit 'Tulasi' on our Vizag studio.
Those who enter the studio with a script, could return with the first copy in that studio and there is no need to look for another side for any facility.' On the occasion, Dr Ramanaidu announced a donation of Rs 5 lakh to the Film Critics Association. Later, the association office bearers felicitated Dr Ramanaidu and presented him a shawl and a memento.
