Generally, there is a talk that Telugu audiences do not like such type of titles. But the recently released film 'Bichagadu' proved it wrong by registering record collections.
The film was released with least expectations, but brought a windfall of profits for the producer by expanding to several screens across the two Telugu states. Even in Tamil, it was released with almost similar title and was a big hit.
Bichagadu’s success has not confined only to two languages. Kannadigas, too, have been crazy about this film. But, since there is a ban on dubbing of other language films into Kannada, it is going to be remade in Karnataka.
Apparently carried away by the tsunami of collections it had in Telugu and Tamil versions, Sandalwood Movie Makers brought the remake rights of Bichagadu in Kannada.
What is more interesting is that top Kannada heroes are vying with one another to do the lead role in the remake of Bichagadu. While star hero Sudeep is the front runner, several young heroes are also very keen on playing the title role and sending feelers to the producers who brought the remake rights.
So, though the title is virtually pedestrian, the lead character could get a lot of demand, thanks to the story and screenplay!
