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.

"'Heroine' principal photography to commence from end Nov!" he added.
There has been a spate of speculation over Bhandarkar's upcoming projects.
In September, it was reported that Bhandarkar had been asked by T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar to remake the superhit that starred Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal. The other buzz was about Bhandarkar's "Fashion 2", for which he is rumoured to have approached Madhuri Dixit, who is back from the US to Mumbai for good.

2011/2/2 12:23:48 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.
In Ravi Teja’s new film, Veera the hit song ‘Maamillathota kaada pandisthe…’from the NTR starrer film Driver Ramudu has been remixed. Kajal and Tapsee are the heroines in Veera. The film is getting ready for release on May 19.
2007/12/7 15:57:20 While the astrologers are predicting that the stars are shining brightly for Chiranjeevi, there is no such good news for Balakrihsna. Some astrologers claim that the present time is not favourable for Balakrishna politically. If Balakrishna is serious about making his political entry, then he should wait for some time.
According to these astrologers, Balakrishna’s fortunes take a turn for the better in the 2012. So if he wants to enter politics, then he had better wait till 2012. His chances are said to be bright in public life from the year 2012. So all Balakrishna fans will have to cool their heels for some more time.

Hrithik Roshan, who plays the lead role in the remake version of the 1990-film Agneepath, says he was never in favour of doing remakes.
However, he also says that the new version of Agneepath is "not a remake", but is a "different world".
Hrithik will reprise Amitabh Bachchan's iconic role -- Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in the upcoming film.
"I am full of gratitude to be part of this project. I was never interested in doing remakes and I don't think I will ever do. When Karan Malhotra came to Spain to narrate the script, in a matter of ten minutes, he made me forget about my pre-conceived notions, all symbolic visuals that I had about the original film...everything vanished and everything seemed new. I reacted to it as a brand new script," Hrithik told reporters here, after the first teaser of the film was launched yesterday.
Directed by debutante Karan Malhotra, actor Priyanka Chopra will play his love interest, Sanjay Dutt would play the villain's role that was originally played by Danny Denzongpa.
Veteran Rishi Kapoor too will be seen in a negative role.
About his role, Hrithik says, I am just playing Vijay he is just another guy, who is on a mission.
When asked what convinced him to accept the film, Hrithik said, "When I was first approached by Karan I was like I should not go down that route at all. He has a different way of narrating the story. He makes those background sounds while narrating...there was audio, visual."
"Half way through the narration I felt I am an actor and I want to go by instincts, whatever my mind says...I am a slave of my instincts. He showed me the completely new world. It is not a remake...it is a different world," he said.
Produced by Karan Johar, under the banner of Dharma Productions, 'Agneepath' will hit cinema houses on January 13, 2012
