This movie was directed by S Shankar in 2001, and was a remake version of hit Tamil movie Mudhalvan!
Yes, you guessed it right!! It’s none other than “Nayak- The Real Hero”! This movie is still popular amongst audience and made both the lead actors Anil Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee overnight stars.
Now the news suggests that after 15 years, there might be a sequel to the movie with a powerful story-line than ever. As per the reports, Eros International and producer Deepak Mukut will be collaborating for the sequel with KV Vijayendra Prasad (man behind super hits like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali) locking the script.
Deepak confirmed and said,
“I have bought the rights from AM Rathnam, the original producer. The sequel will be a political satire with romance as the backdrop. It will take off from where the original one left but with a completely different story. Some characters, like the lead, Shivaji Rao (played by Anil), will be retained.”
He also cleared the air on the star cast,
“We are yet to take a call on the casting or the director. It’ll only happen once the final script is ready. We’d love to have Anil on board if the script demands. The earlier film is still extremely popular and is widely watched on television. The action will be bigger and better this time.”
It’s waiting time!!
